WSC FBLA Career Closet helping students in need
Posted: Feb 10 2023
WILLISTON, N.D. – This week is National Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) Week. Williston State College’s FBLA Collegiate Chapter has been putting on a few activities to raise awareness.
One such activity was the inaugural run of the “Career Closet,” which is a way that people can donate their professional clothes they may not use anymore to help students with having the proper clothes for job interviews or starting a new job.
“WSC’s chapter of FBLA Collegiate has been looking for ways to enhance the WSC student experience. Building a professional wardrobe can be expensive and challenging for college students, which is where our student organization thought they could minimize the financial burden. I’m impressed with the leadership students in this chapter have shown, and the service they have provided to WSC students in minimizing a financial burden and providing a link with the community,” said Assistant Business Professor Leah Windnagle.
This week FBLA received about 10 bags of donations, filling up two mobile, 60-inch wardrobes, one for men and one for women’s clothing.
"As a sophomore at WSC this is a project we've had on the agenda for a while now and it was a big goal of mine before graduation. I am beyond proud of my team and I for bringing this to a reality," said WSC FBLA Collegiate President Alex Sims.
If someone would like to donate to the Career Closet, FBLA is still accepting donations. A box is located at the Western Star Building on the WSC campus, located just south of the Williston ARC.
