Dumas Wesley Community Center and The University of Mobile ENACTUS program have partnered together to open a clothing closet for those in need.
Students in Free Enterprise, the world’s best-known and most successful program helping university students to create community empowerment projects, has changed its name to Enactus to reaffirm its long-standing commitment to using entrepreneurial action as a catalyst for progress.
- Entrepreneurial – having the perspective to see an opportunity and talent to create value from that opportunity.
- Action – the willingness to do something and the commitment to see it through even when the outcome is not guaranteed.
- Us – a collection of people who see themselves connected in some important way; individuals that are part of a greater whole.
With a $1,500 grant from the Walmart Women’s Economic Empowerment Project Partnership the students were able to renovate an old classroom at Dumas Wesley. St. Paul’s Thrift Shop in Daphne, Alabama, donated hangers and clothing racks.
The closet is open to anyone in need in the Mobile and surrounding areas. Each adult/child in the household are allowed one bag per month.
Hours: Every Thursday from 10-11:30 a.m.
