Fitzgibbon Hospital donates to the Saline County Career Center DECA chapter
On Wednesday, April 4, Saline County Career Center DECA received a generous donation from Fitzgibbon Hospital. The donation of $2,000 will help support and sustain chapter funding this year, as nine members are sent to the DECA International Career Development Competition (ICDC) April 20-25, in Atlanta, Ga.
Each year, SCCC DECA works with local initiatives and charities to develop marketing, publicity and advertising plans or general community awareness programs. This year, Marshall Public School’s Project DECA (Public Relations Project), HOOT Resource Center (Public Relations Project), Baby Grace (Community Service Project), and Clean Freaks (Creative Marketing Project) are hoping to place at the international competition. DECA members enjoy giving back to the community, which has supported the chapter wholeheartedly, every step of the way.
SCCC DECA provides a sponsorship level, which includes advertising opportunities through DECA for each business that donates to the chapter. Initially created last year by Quiz Falls and Jack Hemeyer as a “Learn and Earn” project to help fund DECA competitions, Dough4DECA has been continued this year by chapter members as a source of funding for ICDC.
Businesses interested in becoming a sponsor this year can contact Kerry Henley, DECA advisor, at 660-886-6958.
