FBLA/DECA food drive a success

Rhinelander High School's FBLA/DECA Club collected a grand total of 1,820 food items for the local Rhinelander Food Pantry as part of its recent Trick or Can food drive. Close to 30 FBLA/DECA members participated over the course of the three-hour pickup time on Oct. 25, according to a school district press release.

Trick or Can is a statewide DECA initiative that has been going on for a number of years now. This is the second year Rhinelander's FBLA/DECA chapter has hosted the event, and last year the drive brought in 820 food items.

Planning for the event began in August and has slowly developed into the product that landed on Rhinelander community doorways last month.

Instead of the traditional food drive where students sit at a table and wait for the community to bring the food to them, Trick or Can brings the food drive to the communities door, not only raising non-perishable food items but also awareness for an issue in our community, the release states.

"In the second year of the project Rhinelander FBLA/DECA has been thrilled to rise into the upper levels of DECA chapters around the state who participate in this event, along with doubling the number of food items collected," the release states. "We look forward to continuing Trick or Can next year, expanding into more neighborhoods and getting more people involved."
