By From page A3 | December 07, 2012

SUSIUN CITY — The Kroc Center is inviting the public to help “Fill the Truck” on Saturday.

The Salvation Army has partnered with Walmart stores in Solano County to help meet the Christmas wishes of local children. As shoppers enter the Fairfield, Vacaville, Vallejo or Dixon Walmart stores, they will be given a suggested gift list. Trucks will be located in the parking lots to collect the toys.

The event runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

At 3 p.m., the Kroc Center will host Toy Jam: Rockin’ Around the Angel Tree, at 586 E. Wigeon Way. Admission is at least one new, unwrapped toy. Included is a 90-minute U-Jam fitness class. Susy C. Marks, the founder of U-Jam, will be there.

Nearly 1,000 families from Solano County will receive food and toys from the local Salvation Army this Christmas, according to a press release.
