FAIRFIELD — A local foundation is offering gift-wrapping services at the Solano Town Center mall to benefit an after-school mobile recreation and life skills program.
Gift wrap hours are from 5 to 8 p.m. weekdays and noon to 6 p.m. weekends near Sports Authority, on the lower level of the mall. Proceeds benefit the Fairfield Community Foundation, which helps finance the city’s Fun on the Run program.
Teens from Kiwanis Key Clubs and local leadership groups will package the gifts.
The foundation is also in the midst of its annual holiday toy drive to collect new, unwrapped gifts and gift cards to benefit Fun on the Run participants in Fairfield.
Fun on the Run brings physical activity, healthy foods, education and enrichment programs into the heart of Fairfield’s low income neighborhoods. The program serves children from 4 to 15 year of age.
The toy drive will continue through Dec. 15. Gifts can be dropped off at the Daily Republic, 1250 Texas St.; the Fairfield-Suisun Chamber of Commerce, 1111 Webster St.; Gaw Van Male law offices, 1411 Oliver Road; Hopkins Honda, 2499 Auto Mall Parkway; In-Shape Sports clubs at 3254 Rancho Solano Parkway, 3001 Dover Ave. and 1471 Holiday Lane; and the Solano Town Center mall, 1350 Travis Blvd.
