The Primeau “Me 2 We” students collected food bank donations Halloween night. Friday morning, Stu Trenchard from the Morinville Sobeys and Ken Skjersven of the Morinville Food Bank helped to load the non-perishable items into the trailer. The student’s Halloween drive and Sobeys matching contribution resulted in the collection of 880 pounds of food. Sobeys also provided each student with trick or treat bags because students had given up their collection of treats for the food drive. The We Scare Hunger is one of the initiatives undertaken by the students who attended the “We Day” event in Calgary.
