1/4/2020 7:30:00 AM AmeriGas Propane donates $250 to
Rhinelander High School FBLA/DECA Club
AmeriGas Propane recently donated $250 to the FBLA/DECA Club at Rhinelander High School, according to a School District of Rhinelander press release.
According to the release, the AmeriGas team raised funds for the donation through BBQ cylinder sales on their customer appreciation day. They took 50% of every sale and set it aside to be donated to the School District of Rhinelander.
Every year they pick a day, typically "Ridikulus Dae", and run a sale on BBQ cylinder fillups, then make a donation to support the community, the release explains.
"In prior years they have donated to the Rhinelander Area Food Pantry and began a 'fill a backpack' program in support of the Kids in Need organization," the release states. "This year they held a second cylinder filling sale day in an effort to increase their community contribution; they dedicated one sale day to the school district and the other to 'fill a backpack' and both had tremendous community support. Their team decided on the school district this year to assist programs that could use more funding support; the youth are our future and should have every opportunity to actively grow."
The FBLA/DECA Club prepares students for "real world" professional experiences in business management and administration; finance; marketing; hospitality and tourism; logistics; and related careers.
Members are provided with unique opportunities to practice the skills and knowledge they are learning in the classroom as well as gaining the competitive edge for college and career success.
