A total of 575 food items will be donated to the Scotia Food Pantry thanks to the sweat and generosity of students and staff at Glen-Worden.
Students and staff put on their running shoes and came together for the first Hive Run Food Drive and fun run. Grades 3-5 students ran 1.5 miles and K-grade 2 students ran ¾ of a mile mile. The G-W PTA donated apples to the students, to help them refuel with a healthy snack after the run.
“This event demonstrates that we all can be a hero no matter how small you are,” said Physical Education teacher Brett Campbell. “The heroes at Glen-Worden donated food that went to help families in our very own neighborhoods.”
Among the items donated to the drive:
- Cereal – 17 boxes
- Juice – 1 box
- Canned fruit – 23 cans
- Soups – 102 cans
- Vegetables – 157 cans
- Spaghetti sauce – 14 cans/jars
- Peanut butter – 5 jars
- Jelly – 4 jars
- Miscellaneous – 144 items
- Pasta – 106 boxes
The Glen-Worden mascot is the bumble bee, thus the reference to the “hive.”
