Westside DECA Sells Sweets to Serve the Community | Community Spirit
Cookies, brownies, and cupcakes lured students during a three-day bake sale at Westside High School. DECA, a Marketing-based student organization, hosted a bake sale to raise money for a community service project.
DECA President, Kiara Fuller, planned and organized the event after hearing a story of a Macon resident who needs help making Easter baskets for underprivileged children. DECA members will use the money raised from the bake sale to purchase materials for Easter baskets.
“I like helping others and enjoy making a difference in someone’s life,” Kiara said when asked why she initiates community service efforts.
Westside DECA has participated in numerous service efforts including Teens for Jeans, a national service project hosted by the retailer, Aeropostale. More than 300 pairs of jeans were collected from students at Westside and Weaver Middle School, and were donated to homeless teens in the community.
Other service projects for DECA include collecting hygiene items and toys for the Macon Rescue Mission, and delivering Christmas cards to local nursing homes.
