Kudos to SAGA COMMUNICATIONS Country WQNY (Q103.7)/ITHACA, NY morning show host CHRIS ALLINGER for raising $30,000 for the FOOD BANK OF THE SOUTHERN TIER.
For the third year, ALLINGER strapped on his backpack to walk for the FOOD BANK OF SOUTHERN TIER’s BACKPACK PROGRAM™. ALLINGER walked to every town in TOMPKINS COUNTY raising funds for the program that helps feed children at risk of hunger on weekends and holidays during the school year.
"I'm thrilled with the total," said ALLINGER, "but I'm more satisfied that people are getting the message that kids are going without food and we need to step up and rectify that."
