The Wareham Distributive Education Clubs of America (DECA) is getting involved in the community in a meaningful way this winter. Dubbed “Operation Warmth,” the club aims to collect winter gear to be donated to victims of domestic violence at The Women’s Center in New Bedford.

What is DECA?

DECA is one of the largest clubs at Wareham High School where students compete against other towns and schools at conferences to showcase their field of expertise. The club is aimed at preparing these “emerging leaders and entrepreneurs” interested in business careers to help boost their knowledge in the field.

DECA Looks to Give Back

For their first community service project of the school year, DECA is seeking to collect clothing for any age, gender, and size, which will be brought to the Women’s Center downtown.

Donations can be dropped off at the WHS Main Office, WHS Foyer, and Faded Image located at 24 US-6 in Wareham.

DECA Is Interested in the Following Items

  • Hats
  • Gloves
  • Mittens
  • Scarves
  • Socks
  • Any article of clothing that will help those in need to stay warm this winter

It’s wonderful to see motivated students looking to make a difference. They just need a little help from the community.
