Juanita Morris, a business owner who lost her fashion boutique to fire during the Ferguson protests is set to reopen her new store with support from Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity who on Tuesday night donated $20,000 to help with rebuilding.
“I know there’s a god up there,” Morris told KPLR 11 a local news stationg. “There’s more good in the world than there is evil.”
Phi Beta Sigma’s local chapter president made a commitment to help immediately after the November unrest to help restore the community.
“She should have the right to rebuild and grow,” said Robert T. Jordan, Jr who also noted that the chapter’s work to rebuild the community is not finished.
Juanita’s Fashions R Boutique is located at 11833 New Halls Ferry Rd. She plans on opening the new store the weekend of October 2nd and 3rd.
We at WatchTheYard.com would like to commend these bothers for their work in the community. If you support what they are doing please share this article on Facebook to spread the word.
