Rhinelander FBLA/DECA to hold Trick or Can food drive

The Rhinelander High School FBLA/DECA Club is participating in a statewide community service project, Trick or Can. Members will be dropping off bags for community donations and flyers about the event this week and will be back around to pick up the non-perishable food items on Oct. 25.

"Halloween marks a time each year when community members are willing to open their doors and interact with one another spreading joy and candy aplenty, but it is also a great time of need in our community," a school district press release states. "Last year was the first year the local Rhinelander FBLA/DECA did the project and the chapter was able to collect 820 food items for the local food pantry. This not only made an impact on the recipients of the food but the community members and FBLA/DECA members who interacted and spread Halloween cheer with one another."

The event is simple.

Rhinelander High School students will go out into the community strategically and safely distributing donation bags to homes with a flyer explaining what can and cannot be donated. The community's job is to place non-perishable food items into the bag and be ready to have it picked up on Oct. 25!

If you will not be home that day, you can just leave them out front with a note.

In addition, donations will be accepted at all parent-teacher conferences at all district schools.

All donations will go to the Rhinelander Area Food Pantry where they will be redistributed to families who need a little extra help this fall. Any questions, contact the RHS FBLA/DECA advisor Mischell Fryar at 715-365-9500 or
