- Homeless shelter benefits from SAU group’s efforts
Magnolia’s homeless shelter residents have benefitted with additions to improve the quality of life for its youth and adult residents alike thanks to a group of passionate business students at Southern Arkansas University.
Through SAU’s Rankin College of Business’ Enactus organization, students raised money to purchase a complete desktop computer, a new playground for the children, and money towards a new ice machine for the Southern Christian Mission homeless shelter at 515 West Monroe Street in Magnolia.
“I am just overwhelmed,” said Ruthie Sharp, SCM director. “I told them our greatest needs and they blew my mind by doing all the things they set out to do.”
Summer Hours: Monday - Thursday 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Campus is closed on Fridays.
