Dixon Family Services Parking Lot Event
On the morning of Wednesday, June 19 the parking lot next to Dixon Family Services, 155 North Second Street, will be secured for foot traffic only as there will be 3 events happening at one time.
As they do every first and third Wednesday, the Solano/Contra Costa Food Bank Produce Truck will distribute large quantities of fruits and vegetables to those who meet income guidelines. It is suggested that people bring 2 bags with handles. For more information, call the Food Bank at (707) 421-9777.
At another part of the parking lot the Solano County Health and Social Services Dental Van will be parked from 9 – 1. Dentists and assistants can help people of all ages with fillings, extractions, assessments for oral surgery, referrals for further dental work as well as dentures.
And at the same time Dixon Family Services will hold a parking lot sale. People have been generously donating household items, clothing, furniture, books, toys and much more. The DFS Thrift Store may open as early as July but there are items that need to be purchased, such as clothing racks, shelving, a cash register and more. It is the intent of the parking lot sale to generate some funds to purchase the things needed to open up for business in the Adams Street location.
Anyone who has items to donate parking lot sale items, would like to volunteer, would like to donate Thrift Store items needed or donate money to be used for the Thrift Store expenses should contact Cookie or Rich at DFS 678-0442
