Humanitarian Aid Support Kits

This year Utah DECA is working with Lifting Hands International to provide humanitarian aid to refugees, both home and abroad. No Politics, Simply Humanitarian.

All kits MUST CONTAIN NEW ITEMS!

The kits will be collected on February 24 at the State DECA Competition, or arrangements can be made with Jill Hess for kits to be dropped off at locations across the state BEFORE February 24. Kits will be counted at drop-off, by a representative of Utah DECA and Lifting Hands International. If schools are bringing the kits to the State Conference, please plan on appropriate transportation in getting the kits there.

The Top 3 schools with the most kits will receive trophies and be honored at the State Conference. The Top Ten schools with the most kits will be recognized. To be considered for Chapter of the Year, a school must participate in the State DECA Service Project and turn in a minimum of 10 kits.
