Dorothy Day Hospitality House

TBC now staffs the Dorothy Day Hospitality House (aka Danbury Soup Kitchen) the first Wednesday of each month. We provide about 80 meals each afternoon with COVID precautions followed. Everyone who comes to the door is welcomed with no questions asked. All work at Dorothy House is done by volunteers — there is no paid staff. At this time, we need about 4 people to take care of each day. 

Dorothy Day Hospitality House is based on the Houses of Hospitality founded by Dorothy Day during the Great Depression. It is not formally affiliated with any religious organization, and people of all faiths participate in their work. Contact: Peggy Zamore at peggyz18@gmail.com

It is traditional to light a memorial candle at home on the eve of the yahrzeit. You may also find it meaningful while kindling the yahrzeit candle to offer prayers of remembrance or reflect on your loved one’s life. Many also choose this time to make monetary donations in memory of loved ones
