Smithtown HS West DECA Students Donate $825
DECA student Courtney Grafstein, Smithtown High School West 10th grader presented St. Catherine’s Director of Community Outreach Heather Reynolds with $825 on Thursday, January 22, 2015. The donation will benefit patient services at the medical center from funds raised at the first outdoor tree lighting held in December 2014.
The tree lighting event was a part DECA’s Community Service Project, an opportunity for chapter members to develop a better understanding of civic activities and further apply the principles of marketing management.
“The students did such an outstanding job conceptualizing the event, working with local companies and organizations to bring the very successful tree lighting night to life,” said Mrs. Reynolds. “We were so happy to collaborate with them and look forward to doing something similar again next year.”
