DECA collects 500 lbs. of food

Compiling more than 40 volunteer hours and collecting over 500 pounds of food, the Copperas Cove High School DECA students spent their Saturday morning looking out for their fellow students in the school district. For the third straight year the club will focus on their project Snack Pack Friday providing backpacks with food for homeless children of the district. Copperas Cove ISD has 13 students who are homeless with two students at Crossroads High School.
