East Providence Career Technical Center Hosts Canned Good Drive and Fundraiser Helping Several Families in Need for the Holidays


This holiday season the East Providence Career Technical Center hosted a canned food drive and a fundraiser for 3 families in need.

Several of the CTC programs participated and competed to see who could raise the most. The Cosmetology program won the contest, while Culinary Arts was a close second. Over 800 canned goods were collected from the drive.

Along with the canned food drive, members of Skills USA also ran a change collection. The funds raised were kept track of by using a “Jingle Meter.” Over $300 was collected and used to purchase gift cards to help the recipients with their holiday and food shopping.

Three families whose children participate in the CTC were the recipients of the canned goods and gift cards, making their holiday season merrier.

Great job students!
