Last Friday, the students of Hume Elementary participated in their first Halloween for Hunger. Classes delivered flyers to homes announcing what was happening and inviting neigbours to participate by leaving donation out for students to collect. Students dressed in their Halloween costumes then paraded around and picked up the donations.
“The school had a few calls telling us what a great thing we were doing,” said principal Joanne Wilson Beddoes. “Students beamed at the chance to make a difference in our own community.”
Over 25 parent volunteers helped out. On Monday, students delivered two vehicles full of food to the Nelson Food Cupboard. The school hopes to make this an annual event.
