Happy Children

11th Annual Christmas Toy/Winter Coats/Food Giveaway

Our 11th annual toy/coats-for-kids and food drive and giveaway was held on December 16th at Bethel Community Church, as well as special events on Crowley Lane and Dana Drive. Our goal is to ensure low-income children in the community receive at least one new toy for Christmas and they have a warm coat to keep them healthy during the cold winter months and provide food for their families. Bins were placed in local businesses and non-profits to collect toy and coat donations. Toy and coat donations were collected at a booth outside of Macy’s. Over 1,890 children received coats/toys and 500 families received bags of food/personal hygiene products. In total, approximately 2,400 people were served. A special thank you to the Fairfield Police and Fire Departments, as well as Casa De Oracion of Fairfield, as this event would not be a success without their support!

Backpack/Food Giveaway

The Fairfield Community Services Foundation provided a total of 1,341 children and adults attended the event, with 819 backpacks, 425 bags of food and 350 bags of fresh produce distributed. Another 154 backpacks were provided to the Fairfield Police Department and 100 to the FSUSD Family Resource Center for distribution. Touro University provided 16 Tdap vaccinations and 18 COVID-19 vaccinations. Over 70 eye exams were completed by the Fairfield Lion’s Club.

2023 New Toys and Coat Drive at Macy's

On December 2nd and 3rd, 2023, the Fairfield Community Service Foundation held a Toys and Coats drive at Macy's. Thank you to everyone that donated to the toy drive at Macy's. We live in a generous community! We are so grateful for the toy and coat donations. We will be distributing to Fairfield families at Bethel Community Church of Fairfield on December 16th.

Inspiration Sports

“At Promise” middle grade students ride a limo-bus to a professional sporting event. The goal is to expand the student’s horizon beyond Fairfield and to create a lasting inspiration. In 2023, the students attended a River Cats baseball game, a Sac Republic soccer game (where they were on the field to greet players) and a Sacramento Kings game. At the King’s game, thanks to Medic Ambulance, the students watched the game from a suite. Vlade Divac visited the suite and signed autographs. The students receive Inspiration Sports and team t-shirts, along with dinner. Approximately 45 students are served by this program each year.

Club Chaos

FCSF continued funding scholarships for children and adults who need assistance paying for summer camp. Club Chaos is an indoor/outdoor summer camp for children and adults with special needs. Activities include swimming and water play, arts and crafts, and music and movement.

Scholarships for High School Seniors

FCSF provided $14,500 in scholarships to 8 high school seniors in need of financial support for college through the Assist-A-Grad program.


FCSF installed two paver patios. Chris with Concentric Concrete provided volunteer supervision, First Northern Bank brought approximately 25 hard-working volunteers and the Brickyard in Vacaville donated most of the materials. Two flower planters with drip irrigation were also installed.

St. Mark's Manna Food Pantry

FCSF continued it support of the Manna Food Pantry, in partnership with Paradise Valley Estates. Using grant funding, FCSF purchased proteins. FCSF has been funding food purchases at St. Mark’s since the start of the pandemic. FCSF has also purchased new commercial freezers and refrigerators for St. Marks.

Senior Meals

FCSF prepared and provided a traditional Santa Maria barbecue for 120 seniors and a traditional Thanksgiving dinner for approximately 85 seniors at the Adult Recreation Center (ARC). The Fairfield Fire Departments and their Fire Explorers supported the event. Proceeds from the dinners benefit ARC programs.

Thanksgiving Helping Hand

Members from the Fairfield Police Department and Grange Middle School delivered 20 Thanksgiving meals to “Grizzly” families. Led by Officer (newly promoted SGT) Bender and Grange Community Outreach Liaisons, this was the third year, and a wonderful tradition supporting Grange families during the holidays. FCSF provided $1,500, which allowed for double the number of families served, while also adding winter P.E. clothing. Grange serves some of the most resilient, hardworking and lower income families throughout Fairfield.
