Four tons of food were delivered to CHOW in Binghamton, thanks to employees at Columbian Financial Group.

CHOW serves thousands of people in the community each month through its 95 food pantries, soup kitchens and meal sites. This donation will go toward their summer feeding program for children.

"Most people think of giving when it's the holiday season or they happen to have something that happens,” said Columbian Financial Group Vice Chair Patrick Mannion. “For us, we do it this time of year because it's not a bad way to help bolster chow at a time where others may not be thinking about it and in a community that always needs the food resources that they provide."

Columbian Financial Group has donated more than 22 tons of food to CHOW since the company started its food drive in 2010.
