Kudos to leadership students

Barriere Elementary school grades six and seven participated in a food drive

Submitted by the Barriere Food Bank

The Barriere Elementary school grades six and seven participated in a food drive on Oct. 31 in conjunction with Halloween Trick or Treating.  In this case, the treats were food donations.  This was an idea put forth by Matlock Brown at the WE Convention in Vancouver.  Children were asked what they would do to help their community locally, and Matlock’s idea was to do a food drive for the Food Bank.  The We Scare Hunger program was the basis for doing the food drive in conjunction with Matlock’s idea.

The children collected 328 pounds of food (339 pieces) and a five dollar donation.  Matlock Brown and Sami Jones helped to accept the donations in the school library the following morning and then helped to deliver the food to the Food Bank.  Both Matlock and Sami are in the seventh grade leadership program.
