Business Professional Association (BPA) members from Wadena-Deer Creek High School recently completed their annual Empty Stocking project. A total of 270 toys were collected. Mrs. Smith's second-grade class collected the most toys with a total of 67, followed by Ms. Berg's with 31 and Mr. Savoie's with 24. BPA members delivered the donations to the office of the Wadena Pioneer Journal where they will be sorted and then delivered to the less fortunate children of families who reside in Wadena County. Thank you to all students who participated in this worthy cause.
