On Tuesday, November 20th, the Nonnewaug High School DECA Chapter hosted a community service event to help the St. Vincent De Paul homeless shelter residing in Waterbury by providing them with homemade sandwiches and winter clothes.
The fundraising event, which took place after school, succeeded in making 100 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and collected a box of winter clothes.
This event was run by the students participating in DECA, which is an international business club which helps student entrepreneurs prepare for careers in management, marketing, hospitality and finance. It was started as a part of their campaign for community service and the participants found it to be, not only a good way to involve their chapter in the community, but a gratifying experience overall.
The hosts were juniors and seniors that run the Nonnewaug Chapter including the President, Cassandra Barbino, the CFO, Will Coleman, the Vice Presidents, Jason Zulpa and Simon Stone, the CMO, Mariah Hubert, the School Store Manager, Andrew Ray, and the Chapter Advisor, Devon Bares.
“Helping out those in need, especially as the cold winter months draw near, was very rewarding and we had a great time doing it,” said Barbino.
