ACTS reducing hours but not services

Sep. 01, 2014 @ 02:40 PM

Area Christians Together in Service will have new operating hours starting Sept. 15.

The nonprofit will close two hours earlier than normal. The new schedule is 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday.

ACTS director Twanna Jones said the new hours keep more than one staff member on call during the day.

She said the decision will not effect the soup kitchen’s work in Henderson.

“Even though the hours of operation are going to be shorter, we are still going to provide the same services as before with excellence,” she said. “We are still going to continue to meet the needs of the community.”

Those wishing to stop by the office after 2 p.m. must schedule an appointment by calling the office at (252) 492-8231.

Jones said she hopes to secure more funding in the future to create full-time positions that could fit the 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. schedule.
