Glen-Worden students and staff donate to shelter during the Hive Run Food Drive

Students share a moment during the run

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.”
