WITC trade students donate time
WITC-Superior's heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration students took a break from their studies to help Second Harvest Northern Lakes Food Bank. Students assembled hundreds of boxes for distribution through the Nutrition Assistance Program. Students also labeled and packaged cereal and shelved items for the organization's in-house food shelf.
The students also were involved in cleanup efforts at Faxon Creek, which is about three miles long and drains wetlands near Tower Avenue and 39th Street. The creek flows northwest through three campuses, including Northern Lights Elementary School, the University of Wisconsin-Superior and Superior High School, as well as heavily developed residential areas. Monitoring data show that the stream becomes more polluted the closer it gets to Lake Superior. Faxon Creek is listed on the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resource's Impaired Waters list due to degraded biological communities.
