With donations, children can be entered into a drawing to be “cop for a day.” One boy and one girl, ages 5-17, will be selected to spend the day with Fairfield police officers (K-9, detectives, crime scene technicians, patrol, and SWAT).
Food items needed include cereal, canned fruit, applesauce, corn, green beans, mixed vegetables, beans, soup, canned meals, peanut butter, spaghetti sauce, spaghetti, boxed side dishes, macaroni and cheese, sweet snacks, and salty snacks.
