Union-Endicott hockey team donates 1,130 pounds of food to CHOW

NIMMONSBURG -- Chenango Valley remained unbeaten, Union-Endicott picked up a pair of victories and CHOW was the big winner during Broome County High School Hockey Association action Sunday at the BCC Ice Center.

Sunday marked the BCHSHA's annual CHOW Challenge, with each of the association's eight teams bringing to the rink non-perishable food items for donation to the Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse.

One hour's free ice time -- awarded to the team with the greatest donation -- went to Union-Endicott, which turned over 1,130 pounds. In all, donations totaled 3,703 pounds, said Ann Bello, CHOW Challenge chairperson and Seton Catholic Central team manager.

"That's almost double the amount from last year," Bello said. "We do this every year after the holidays to help re-stock the pantries."
