The items will be donated to Operation Hope, a homeless shelter in downtown Fairfield that needs to restock its pantry following Sandy, according to a release.

People may drop off goods at its Fairfield store, 1591 Post Road, during regular business hours from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Items needed include: peanut butter and jelly; macaroni and cheese; canned tuna, meats and stews; cereal; instant and hot cereals; coffee; canned fruit and other nonperishable and canned goods.

Toiletries such as baby diapers, feminine products, shampoo, soap, deodorant, razors and shaving cream are also needed.
