The Decorah FFA and Community Club organized the most successful food drive to date, with Decorah High School students and staff donating over $1660 to the Decorah Community Food Pantry.  

“Even in tough times throughout 2020, it was great to see our school come together and help others out,” remarked senior Shayla Smith, a leader of Decorah’s FFA organization.   

Emma Nierengarten, senior leader of Community Club added, “I’m so thrilled that our school body was able to come together and raise over $1,600 for the food pantry. Being able to give back to the community is so important, especially since 2020 has been a difficult year for so many families.”
