Throughout the year, schools in Trillium Lakelands District School (TLDSB) participate in a ME to WE leadership program, where students that explore social issues, build transferable skills, and create positive social change are chosen by teachers to be apart of a WE Team. Throughout the year, this team takes part in many initiatives, one of which tasks students to participate in a local campaign to give back to the community.
For the past five years, Parkview Public School’s WE Team have chosen to participate in the WE Scare Hunger campaign. Throughout the month of October, students organized a food drive, collecting non-perishable food items to raise awareness on the issue of food insecurity.
The WE Team collected 219 pounds of food items to donate to the Kawartha Lakes Food Source.
