Video: Indianapolis Community Court Expanding Services for Safer Community
The David S. Moore Food Pantry is open on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday of each month. Tuesday and Thursday hours are from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturday hours are from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Court staff can also provide emergency food assistance from the David S. Moore Food Pantry any time during regular business hours.
The Indianapolis Community Court works in partnership with St. Joan of Arc Holy Family Ministry and its Ladies' Auxiliary to collect donations of food and clothing for defendants and area residents in need. It's dedicated to fallen IMPD Officer David S. Moore, 29, who suffered multiple gunshot wounds during a routine traffic stop two years ago. He died three days later. He joined IMPD in 2004.
The Indianapolis Community Court works with community partners and neighborhoods to address the root causes of crime and provides wraparound services and alternatives to incarceration for low-level misdemeanor defendants who are willing to plead guilty to their offenses. The ultimate purpose of Community Court is to reduce the likelihood of reoffending which saves taxpayers’ dollars for police, prosecution, defense, courts, incarceration, and many other city/county agencies.
To make a donation of non-perishable food and gently used clothing, please contact Mary Ann Schaefer at St. Joan of Arc Holy Family Ministry, 4217 N. Central Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46205, call 317-283-5508, or drop off at Community Court, 902 Virginia Avenue. Donors may also contribute funds to the Officer David S. Moore Foundation, P.O. Box 39284, Indianapolis, IN 46239, and indicate the contribution is for the “David S. Moore Food Pantry.”
