The Mall at Fairfield Commons will serve as a COVID-19 supply drop-off site for Greene County Public Health, Crayons to Classrooms and House of Bread, according to the site’s owner.

The Beavercreek mall at 2727 Fairfield Commons will be a drop-off point for personal protective equipment, school supplies and nonperishable foods in a partnership with those three organizations, Washington Prime Group Inc. announced Tuesday.

A donation bin has been placed outside of Entrance A – the main entrance by restaurants - where all donated items can be dropped from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., according to the mall owners.

Greene County Public Health is seeking PPE donations from businesses to help keep healthcare personnel and patients healthy and safe in the COVID-19 pandemic. Crayons to Classrooms is collecting school supplies to be distributed to local children in need who are temporarily schooling at home.

House of Bread, a Dayton community kitchen serving nutritious lunch meals to anyone in need, is asking for donations of nonperishable food to meet a rising demand for those seeking lunch.

The Columbus-based business said last month the Beavercreek mall and the Dayton Mall in Miami Twp. will remain closed due to the coronavirus until a date in compliance with applicable federal, local or state mandates, according to its website.

The company has more than 100 assets in 20-plus states, including nine properties in Ohio and Illinois.
