Food drive to benefit Mission Solano program

By From page A9 | August 25, 2014

FAIRFIELD — First Bank of Fairfield is teaming up with Mission Solano for the Take Action Against Hunger food drive in September.

Throughout September, people can drop of nonperishable food at First Bank, 2407 Waterman Blvd. The lobby is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday.

People who donate five or more items will receive a First Bank reusable grocery bag, one bag per customer. All people 18 and older who donate items will be entered into a drawing for a gift basket, a First Bank press release said.

“This drive can really make a difference in so many lives,” said Patrick Nygard, vice president and branch manager for First Bank, in the press release.

First Bank is a privately owned bank with $6.23 billion in assets and 130 locations in California, Missouri, Florida and Illinois.

    I hope every local organization that gets donations takes better care of them this year. Tired of hearing how they were "robbed."

    Yes but their "robbery" worked out quite well for them. And how nice that they didn't even file a police report but made sure to call the daily republic. Well played!

    Dexter, exactly! I'll be looking forward to this year's excuse. We began taking a more personal approach last year and won't be contributing to these local organizations any more.
