The Holiday Hamper

This December, we will be hosting our 4th Annual Holiday Hamper at the Calvary Baptist Church located at 466 Chenango Street, Binghamton, NY.

This is an event in which community members, the homeless and those in serious financial need, will have an opportunity to obtain new and gently used clothes, household items, Christmas stockings, hot cocoa, cookies, hair cuts, make-overs, pictures with Santa, and more, completely FREE. We try to provide a day of warmth and holiday cheer.
