A Wisconsin DECA initiative, Trick-or-Can involves members collecting canned good and other food items to donate to local food shelters. Last year, BC DECA collected over 500 items, contributing to WI DECA’s multi-thousand total. “I had a lot of fun assembling the bags with the officer team and distributing and collecting them with my friends,” said Sami Krutz (‘20), the 2018-2019 BC DECA VP of Community Service and one of this year’s co-presidents.
