FAIRFIELD — Matt Garcia Learning Center teachers will have an extra $600 worth of markers, glue sticks, crayons, sticky notes, erasers, hand sanitizer and other school supplies before the first day of school this year.
The Sons of Italy Northern Solano Lodge No. 2534 members Albert Galli, Pat Galli, Helen Barker and Richard Barker dropped off the supplies at the center Tuesday. The group raised the money to buy the supplies in its fourth annual school supplies drive.
