DDOC Hours Changed_InTextThe Dorothy Day Outreach Center (DDOC) at Saint Francis University has announced new hours, effective immediately, to better serve their clients. 

With an overwhelming amount of administrative responsibilities, the Center will be closed on the weekends and Mondays. Paperwork, reports, phone calls, event preparation, fundraisers, cleaning, and other essential duties will take place during this time. 

Food will now be distributed on Tuesday mornings (9 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.) and Thursday afternoons (1 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.) only. Because of a new and exciting opportunity enabling the Center to give out fresh breads, vegetables, and fruits to its clients, the foods need to be distributed immediately to prevent spoilage. As a result, clients will be funneled to these new specific days and times, allowing more food to be given out with less waste. 

The clothing pantry will be open on Wednesdays and Fridays, allowing clients to browse for clothing throughout these days from 9 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. 

Financial assistance, which operates from October 1 through April 1 will remain by appointment only, as will furniture requests (appointment and availability only). 

The DDOC’s mission is important, and by adjusting their schedule, they hope to better serve their clients.
