During this unprecedented time, the people served by the PRC community are even more vulnerable. We are committed to our mission to respond to basic human needs and to create a future of hope and opportunity for the people of DuPage County. Now more than ever, PRC services are vital to meeting the needs of our neighbors.
PRC is closely monitoring all updates and CDC guidance about the coronavirus outbreak. Our goal is to follow all precautions based on the health department and CDC guidelines, and to equip our employees, volunteers and clients to help all who visit a PRC site to stay safe.
During this time, PRC is open only during our food pantry shifts to provide our DuPage neighbors with emergency food and financial assistance. All other services are closed, and our buildings remain closed to the public. Jobs, Literacy, Art and Computer Training teams are working remotely to develop additional online resosurces and engage volunteers during this time.
We have adapted our food delivery process from a choice pantry to providing pre-packaged food to parked cars. There will be no personal shopping during the coronavirus outbreak in order to minimize the risk of contact and to service people as quickly as possible. Our temporary food pantry shifts are:
