A little over a month since Hurricane Sandy ravaged the East Coast, Cape Hatteras Secondary School DECA students are joining together to raise money to go towards the purchasing of coats and jackets for students at a school in Pine Island, New Jersey. While many residents in the Northeast continue to suffer the devastating effects of Sandy, a 6th grade teacher in Pine Island is reaching out for help.
DECA students are seeking local support from businesses and individuals, while planning a few fundraisers to help raise money for the cause. Monetary donations can be mailed to: Cape Hatteras Secondary School, Attn: Evan Ferguson – DECA, P.O. Box 948, Buxton, NC 27920. Please be sure to write Jackets for Jersey in the memo. Businesses and individuals who make a donation will be mentioned on the Jackets for Jersey Facebook page, as well as the DECA publication for the state of North Carolina.
Local DECA students are planning to travel to New Jersey on January 17th to present the check to Pine Island students.
