COVID-19 UPDATE

Starting August 18, 2020, the CEOC pantry will serve people on Tuesdays from 12 pm – 2 pm and on Thursdays from 11 am – 1pm.

The pantry will be held outside for the safety of all.

We ask that you please wear a face covering and that you maintain a social distance of 6 feet from others.  Because our building is closed to the public, we regret that we do not have restrooms available for public use.

Empezando el 18 de agosto, nuestra despensa de comida estará abierta los martes 12 pm – 2 pm y los jueves 11 am – 1 pm.

Para el salúd de todos, si visita la despensa, se requiere una cubierta facial y que mantenga una distancia de seis pies entre usted y cualquier otra persona. Porque nuestro edificio está cerrada al público, desafortunadamente no podemos ofrecerles el uso del baño.

Aunque nuestro edificio está cerrado al público, estamos trabajando. Estamos pendiente del teléfono y del correo electrónico y estamos para servirles.

CEOC’s building is closed to the public but we are working to serve you!  You can reach us by telephone, email, and by using our contact form.
