FAIRFIELD — In response to COVID-19 and the need to help at-risk individuals with basic necessities, a group of Fairfield concerned citizens will hold a fourth drive on Sunday, April 5 from 10 a.m. to noon at First Church Congregational, 148 Beach Road. This week, volunteers will be collecting gift cards to local grocery stores including Stop & Shop and ShopRite. Food donations will also be accepted such as cereal, boxed milk, jelly, peanutbutter, canned soup, stews and chili, toiletries and cleaning products.
Given the need for social distancing, those who want to donate gift cards can pull up and dispense grocery cards into bins. In addition, grocery carts are available on-site where people can place food donations. Volunteers on-site will be wearing gloves and taking safety precautions.
