Supply Chain Management Aids BPW at Santa Breakfast

This holiday season the Supply Chain Management Class of the Greenville Career Tech Center helped bring some festive cheer by assisting the local Business & Professional Women’s Club with their annual breakfast with Santa!

On Saturday, December 15th, members of BPW and SCM welcomed 70+ guests to enjoy a fun filled morning including breakfast with Santa, holiday music and gifts for all of the children.

The students are members of Business Professionals of America and wanted to participate in a holiday community service event. The group connected locally with Business & Professional Women’s Club and volunteered to help with Breakfast with Santa. The instructor for SCM and also BPW member is Dara Buchy who coordinated the students’ efforts with the club.

During the event the students had to arrive early on a Saturday morning to set-up tables, cooked food, greeted the guests, assisted the photographer, aided Santa, served food, and then completed the morning with clean-up. In the Kitchen there were several hard working student chefs. Isaac Lane, Junior SCM member explained, “Cooking is sure harder than it looks!”

Gifts for the honored guests, the children, were donated by the Supply Chain students and they enjoyed being Elves for Santa as each child had the opportunity to share with Santa exactly what they wanted for Christmas. When asked about the event Sabrina Curry, Senior SCM member shared, “ the kids are so cute and happy to be here with Santa! This is really FUN!”
