Latta DECA members helping typhoon victims

Latta —  

Latta DECA members Nikole and Noelle Vargas are taking the OPT 4 Green message out of the country. Latta DECA organized OPT 4 Green in 2008 in partnership with Holcim. This year the members are carrying the message overseas to Ligao, Albay, Philippines.

Since Typhoon Ondoy hit in 2010, the country has been in a clean up effort. Some areas have advanced farther than others.  

Ligao is suffering more than others. Nikole and Noelle realized this need and are striving to help by educating the children of Ligao about the importance of Green Marketing to their town.

The DECA members have raised over $400 to provide educational materials and supplies to start to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle to clean up their environment and improve living conditions.
