Before saying goodbye to school for the summer, the 4th grade students of Hartwood Elementary School held a Walk-a-Thon to help raise awareness and provide food for area students. Hartwood 4th grade teacher, Ms. Elena Beard organized the walk to benefit the Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank. One hundred students walked on average two miles each to raise $949.19 which will provide 1,898 meals to help families with children home for the summer that need of additional food assistance. Thank you Ms. Beard and all the kids at Hartwood Elementary School for puttin’ some distance between our kids and hunger…what a great way to create a hunger-free community. Happy Summer!
