Volunteer Days at the New Dawn Outreach Center

Thank you to our wonderful volunteers who helped with the cleanup and painting of our new building at 350 East Adams Street in downtown Jacksonville, and a special thank you to the Ditech Financial office in Jacksonville that shared 14 of their finest employees with us to volunteer over the three volunteer work days.

"A New York Deli with a Southern Café Touch"

Akel's Downtown Deli on West Forsyth is now the New Dawn Deli-Café.  The name change integrates the relationship between the deli-café and New Dawn Outreach.  Proceeds from the deli-café are reinvested into the Jacksonville - First Coast area, focusing on the downtown area and its "street friends." 


The deli-café is open Monday through Friday 6:30 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Stop in for a made-to-order breakfast (served all day), signature sandwich or the homemade daily special.  Be sure not to leave without trying a piece of the "heavenly carrot cake" available only at the New Dawn Deli-Café.
