FAIRFIELD - Volunteers in Fairfield are collecting donations Saturday to help hundreds of families.

Representatives at Operation Hope are collecting donated items at the Town Hall Green and bringing them to the Fairfield pantry where they will help hundreds of families.

Organizers say this year, they are looking not only for grocery items, but specifically toothbrushes, toothpaste and other toiletry items.

They say this time of year is when they ask for the most donations, calling it the "giving season" from Thanksgiving until the new year.
