The students and staff of our school will once again be holding a Food Bank Drive benefiting the Wheatland County Food Bank and the Strathmore & District Christmas Hamper Society. We are delighted to have been supporting these organizations for over 15 years now, and are very excited to participate again in the WE Scare Hunger food Bank Drive. We will once again be holding our food bank drive this week and will be partnering with Strathmore Ford, Ford Canada and the #WEscareHunger program which is a venture of #WEmovement. This endeavour ties in beautifully with our Leader in Me Initiative at Wheatland Elementary, particularly those aspects of the program emphasizing good citizenship, thinking win-win, synergizing, and finding meaningful ways to help others. The Grade 6 Student Leadership Council will be doing all of the organizing for this event, including the tallying, sorting and packaging of all donated items.
The Food Bank Drive will take place on the following dates: October 21, 22, 23, 24 and 25.
