Fundraiser for CHOW

Swim team to aid food pantries

August 4, 2010, 2:47 pm

The Union-Endicott girls swim team is challenging other local swim teams and swim enthusiasts to fill the shelves in local food pantries by participating in Swim Away Hunger from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 21 at the Boys & Girls Club of Western Broome.

Instead of an entry fee, participants are asked to bring a food donation for the Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse. There will be music and prizes.

“We want to beat our donation record for last year,” said Emma Zaremba, a UE senior and co-organizer of this event. “Last year, we raised 2,200 pounds of food and $1,100 for CHOW. We are asking other swim teams to join us, but this event is open to anyone who wants to swim.”
