Hello friends and family of DCC- 3/29/20
We are writing to update everyone on the Club’s recent closure due to COVID-19 and the continued safety of our members and staff. The doors will remain closed here at the Dupont Circle Club until there is a substantial change in the public health threat. We know that it is difficult to not have a firm date for when the club will reopen, but we feel it is best to follow the guidance of public health officials and do what is best for our entire community. Please keep checking back here, on our website and your email for additional updates.
We want to thank you and continue to support your recovery efforts in these trying times. Even though our doors are closed, our members, like you, continue to meet and support one another – virtually, on the phone, on social media and in nearby parks at safe social distances.
Your adaptability, your perseverance and your sense of community will ensure that you and the Dupont Circle Club will continue to thrive one day at a time.
Like many other small nonprofits, we face financial pressure from fixed costs like rent and staff salaries (our management team is being taken care of during this difficult time, as they still are working behind the scenes to clean, protect and prepare DCC for when we open again). However, without receiving regular rents, we are receiving little to no income. Many of you have asked how you can support the Dupont Circle Club during these trying times. You can donate one time, monthly, or annually on the Dupont Circle Club Website at: www.dupontcircleclub.org
No matter how long this crisis goes on, DCC will be there when it is over. We are always there to reach out our hand to the person who needs recovery and help “Improve Lives, One Person at a Time.”
The Dupont Circle Club still welcomes your support, and with your help we’ll be around another 30 years. Thank you for continuing to provide for the Dupont Circle Club during these extraordinary circumstances.
Yours in fellowship,
The Dupont Circle Club Board
