CCTC DECA Students Host Annual Food Drive

Posted

The DECA chapter at Carroll County Technical Center recently partnered with the Carl Perkins Center to host the eighth annual DECA Food Drive.
The theme for this year’s event was “Hunger Games.” All of the students at CCTC worked together to collect over 800 non-perishable and personal care items. The students at CCTC truly worked hard to help because they knew that the donations will help people in need within our community.
Each year, the school has a competition among classes to generate the excitement around the Food Drive event. The competition determines which class can receive the most points by bringing in the most items each day. A point system was created to encourage the gifting of more beneficial items such as non-perishables, hygiene items and baby products to provide quality products for those in need. The students that brought products in the mornings received a donut party, and the students that brought products in the afternoon received a pizza party.
DECA is an organization for marketing students to learn and compete with their peers in the areas of marketing, management and finance. The students will compete at DECA Regionals in January at Union University and will hopefully advance to state and international competitions afterwards.
