The Pursuing Re-Entry and Employment Possibilities (PREP) Center is a program that operates out of the office of the North End Action Team, a community power building nonprofit on Main Street. The PREP Center is run by Wesleyan volunteers and is meant to provide career mentorship for formerly incarcerated Middletown residents, as well as fill in the gaps where town and state re-entry services miss. The PREP Center is collecting new and gently used business-casual clothes to give to those we serve, to help out in the job search process!
They are asking that Wesleyan students use Winter break to gather any unwanted business-casual clothes they may have at home to donate to the PREP Center.
Collection bins are in Usdan (across from Usdan Cafe), the Freeman Athletic Center (right outside the gym), the Hewitt Lounge, the Nicolson Lounge, and the Bennet Lounge.
