In honor of National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, we thank the Fairfield Police Department, our "home" police department, as well as the other police departments in the towns we serve, for maintaining the safety of our community and for supporting our efforts to care for, house and feed our neighbors in need. It's not just today we show our appreciation for those who uphold an oath to protect and serve their communities, but every day.
As we look forward to a new year, we are once again reminded of the 30+ years of your continued support. We can always use more help...today is the final day to receive a 2019 tax deduction for your donation to Operation Hope.
