Economic Development

The MRAC Economic Development Committee is committed to encouraging and empowering our community to become financially literate and economically self-sufficient. In fulfilling our commitment to Delta Sigma Theta’s FIVE-POINT Thrust, we seek to provide monthly programming, as well as quarterly and annual events to ensure education and exposure are provided to the community we serve and beyond. We do this through the development and implementation of programs that address the Financial Planning and Consumer Literacy needs of our community.

The October Business of the Month is Dasher Creations owned by Soror Shanequa Dasher Brunson.

Dasher Creations offers creative education services for children and adults. We have been in business for 7 years, offering our services globally. From DIY craft parties and classes for all, to kids drama and dance classes with our performing arts partnership, Dasher Creations has got your “virtually” covered. Our specialty program, Calculate and Create, is designed for grades 3-8 and bridges the connection between math, crafting, and entrepreneurship. Our Calculate and Create program is aligned with our newly released children’s book series Calculate and Create Adventures which is now available for purchase. Dasher Creations is excited to help ignite creativity and confidence in both your and your child through hands on and fun learning experiences.
