Students at Hutton Elementary School didn’t let a little rain dampen their spirits as they played a fun soccer game and brought in over 185 cans of food for the Boundary Community Food Bank.

A group of classmates at the school helped organize the global citizenship project on Thursday, which included a near school-wide soccer game. The main organizers were Leandra Wilson, Hanna Kiselbach, Haven Visser and Aliyah Clark.

“We started the project around the start of March,” said Wilson.

Visser said the students came up with the idea of organizing a soccer game with each student contributing an item for the food bank for the opportunity to play.

“We all love sports so we came up the idea of having a soccer game and we thought of incorporating it with our project,” added Kiselbach.

“We thought it would be a cool idea if we could get people to bring a non-perishable food item to play the game,” said Wilson.

The class donated the items to the food bank right after the game.
