Reopening Celebration

 A local business plants its roots in the community by establishing itself as a viable partner who provides goods and services to benefit the consumer. When a business invests in social issues that affect the community, then it creates connections that benefit everyone. Jeff Wellesley, the store manager of Sam’s Club, has invested into his local community through various business and philanthropic efforts that range from giving entrepreneurs such as Jerome Brown’s BBQ access to customers by carrying its line of barbecue sauces to donating funds to various nonprofits and government agencies such as Children’s Miracle Network, Pine Castle, & the USO.

–Domestic Violence is one of the greatest overlooked problems in our society," says D.I.P.Foundation Director P.K. Mickens. "To date, domestic violence has been largely viewed as a private matter and a gender issue. We have to get to the place where society sees domestic violence as a violation of human rights over everything else. With the public's support, I hope that we can get to a place where we are not scared to speak out against abusers, and to see abusive behavior as a crime.
