Throughout the school year, the members of the Babylon High School DECA club not only work to become emerging leaders and entrepreneurs, but also devote countless hours to philanthropic causes. This October, DECA members and their advisers, Claire Reilly and Andy Marulis, rolled up their sleeves and coordinated a community car wash for the Babylon Breast Cancer Coalition and the American Cancer Society, the New York State DECA designated charity.

Adding in funds collected during a staff jeans day (staff made donations to wear jeans to school), the club donated a combined $450 to the two organizations. These donations will aid in the BBCC’s work to provide patient support services, education and advocacy programs as well as the American Cancer Society’s fight against cancer.

With more than 100 members spanning grades nine to 12, Babylon’s DECA club is one of the largest in the school. They perform well during annual regional competitions and often advance to compete against peers at the state level.
