September 10, 2010, 7:55 am

Pledge envelopes are now available for walkers who want to participate in the 28th annual CHOW Hunger Walk Oct. 17 on the Binghamton University campus.

The annual event supports the Broome County Council of Churches’ Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse. Pledge packets can be picked up at the Council of Churches at 3 Otseningo St. in Binghamton. Walkers are asked to call the Council of Churches at 724-9130 to pick up the packets. Council offices are open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Registration for the 2.5-mile walk begins at 1 p.m. Oct. 17, with the walk kick off at 2 p.m. Refreshments, food and entertainment will follow. Anyone who collects at least $50 will get a free t-shirt.

The walk’s aim is to build up food inventories for the winter. The food is used to stock 30 local pantries.
