On September 16, 2020, Hurricane Sally came ashore in Alabama, leaving the Mobile community reeling from its aftermath. Dumas Wesley's staff, volunteers and community supporters came together to provide the following services to participants affected by the hurricane:

  • The day before Hurricane Sally was projected to make landfall, Dumas Wesley staff acted quickly to deliver 364 meals to 56 homebound seniors.
  • On September 18th, the Missions Team from Ashland Place United Methodist Church provided 400 free lunches to families at Sybil Smith Family Village and the Mobile community. “It is so important to us to love our neighbors,” said Cammie Singleton, Ashland Place UMC Missions Chair. “When a disaster strikes our community, our Missions Team responds. There is nothing better than loving your neighbor as yourself!”
  • On September 20th, Alabama Power donated 45 boxed dinners and 85 boxed breakfasts and lunches for residents housed at Dumas Wesley's Sybil Smith Family Village. "Alabama Power is pleased to support the Sybil Smith Family Village as the organization works to assist families and provide transitional housing,” said Beth Thomas, Alabama Power Corporate Communications Manager. “Helping the community is important to us at Alabama Power and we are proud to be able to give back.”
  • On September 21st, Dumas Wesley volunteer, Lisa Howard, orchestrated a donation of 240 bottles of water for Dumas Wesley's at-risk seniors. Thank you Rainbow Spring Water, INC. for the donation.
