Stop by IC Square at 3:00 PM on Friday, September 12th to support Chris Allinger, radio host of Q 103.7, as he raises money for the Food Bank of the Southern Tier's BackPack™ Program. Ithaca College will be his last stop and we've set up the sage to welcome him back to Ithaca!
Starting today, Chris begins his 100+ mile trek around Tompkins County at Cornell University. As Chris walks, he collects donations to support the Food Bank of the Southern Tier. The BackPack™ Program provides healthy, kid-friendly foods to children at risk for hunger. These children do not have access to food at home over the weekends and holiday breaks and each child in the program discreetly receives a backpack stuffed with food to last through their school break.
Show your support for Chris and the Food Bank by cheering him on the last leg of his route through IC Square on Friday, September 12th at 3:00 PM. Refreshments will be provided!
More information about Walkin' the Country and the Food Bank can be found here.
