A Fridgid February Run Will Benefit the Rescue Mission

Kathy Whyte/ WNBF News

Appearing on the January 25th edition of the weekly local public affairs show, Southern Tier Close Up, Rescue Mission Donor Relations Representative, Vikki Collazo gives details of the first ever Freeze Out 5K to End Homelessness, planned for February 1 at SUNY Broome Community College in the Town of Dickinson.

Collazo says the run/walk in the dead of winter will not only raise funds for the Mission, which provides a residence in Binghamton to previously homeless men and helps them get back on their feet, but also will raise awareness about what it is like to have to live out in all kinds of weather as a homeless person.

The Rescue Mission says there were 1,723 people who were homeless in Broome County in 2012-2013.

On the program, Collazo also touches on other projects of the Rescue Mission in the Binghamton area including operating the Thrifty Shopper and homeless outreach.

Collazo also thanks the men’s and women’s basketball teams that have been collecting items needed by homeless people at some basketball games that will be distributed to those in need by volunteers from Whitney Place.

Information about registration for the Freeze Out 5K can be found at while information about the Rescue Mission can be found at

Southern Tier Close Up can be heard Saturdays at 12:10p.m. on News Radio 1290 WNBF.
