TO ACCESS SERVICES
During COVID-19 and the Ohio Stay at Home Order, the May Dugan Center has changed operations of our Food Distribution.
The May Dugan Center will be providing distributions on the following days:
Wednesday, August 12th, 10am-2pm: Drive Thru Distribution
Thursday, August 13th: Walk in Distribution (call for appointment)
Wednesday, August 26th, 10am-2pm: Drive Thru Distribution
Thursday, August 27th: Walk in Distribution (call for appointment)
We ask participants to read the full description of the process before coming to the May Dugan Center:
Walk-ins cannot be accommodated on Wednesday, so all people are asked to drive. Cars will line up on Bridge Avenue and continue westward.
Participants will remain in their cars and food will be placed in the trunk so as to minimize contact. Participants are asked to provide sufficient trunk space for the food.
If you do not have a vehicle, you can authorize someone else (known as a proxy) to pick up food on your behalf. The person you select must have a vehicle and present a letter at the time of food distribution that contains the following information: the recipient’s name, the name of the person picking up food, the day of the distribution and the recipient’s signature.
If no vechile or proxy is available, please call the May Dugan Center at 216-631-5800 x300. Other arrangements will be made to help you get food.
