Help Students by Clearing Closet Space
Members of the Encinal High School DECA club are working to raise money so they can attend DECA’s “New York Experience” event in New York City this winter. The club is currently seeking donations of clothes, electronics, DVDs/CDs, furniture, bicycles, school supplies, toys, video games and jewelry to supply a yard sale set for Saturday, Sept. 22.
Bring old clothing or other saleable items to Encinal High School, room 406, Monday through Friday from 7 to 8 a.m. and from 3 to 5 p.m. Donations will be accepted until Wednesday, Sept. 19. All the money raised will be donated to the club to help fund the trip.
DECA “prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs for careers in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges around the globe,” according to its website.
