FOX HILLS MALL JOINS RECONSTRUCTION EFFORT

 FOX HILLS MALL JOINS RECONSTRUCTION EFFORT
 CULVER CITY, Calif., May 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Merchants at Fox Hills


Mall have launched three community programs that will assist area residents in recovering their losses following last week's widespread civil disturbances, according to an announcement made by Deborah Hardy, CMD, marketing director for the shopping center.
 "Although Fox Hills was spared the looting and destruction that took place last week, we realize that many were left homeless or without jobs," said Hardy. "Were it not for the tremendous support Fox Hills received from the National Guard and Culver City Police Department, as well as our own security staff, the mall might not have been spared. However, now it is our turn to lend a helping hand," she added.
 According to Hardy, Fox Hills is working with the Salvation Army to spearhead a food drive to collect canned goods and other non-perishable foods starting on Tuesday. Volunteers from the Culver/Palms YMCA, the Culver City Senior Citizens Center, and the staff of KACE radio station are manning a convenient in-center collection site at Center Court, as well as Fox Hills Mall sites at The Broadway and at the entrance to the May Co. Collection boxes have been donated by Bekins Van Lines.
 "The Salvation Army is requesting baby food, peanut butter, jelly, boxes of cereal, potato chips and crackers, as well as other non- perishable dried and canned foods," noted Hardy.
 Among other community efforts sponsored by Fox Hills is a Job Fair to aid those that may have lost jobs as a result of widespread fires. A date for the Job Fair, now in the planning stages, has not been set.
 Hardy explained that throughout the recession, Fox Hills' Information Booth has been keeping a notebook of jobs available at stores within the mall, and that as recently as this morning, merchants were encouraged to add new listing availabilities.
 Additionally, many merchants have joined the relief effort organized by the American Red Cross. Those participating merchants will be reimbursed by the Red Cross, when a "disbursing order" for clothing and other goods is presented.
 "We are pleased that we can participate in the rebuilding process within our community in a leadership role. When you think about it, we could have been among the casualties. Now is the time for all of us to come together and demonstrate support," concluded Hardy.
 According to Hardy, Fox Hills was closed as a precautionary measure from Thursday afternoon through Saturday. Losses from sales during that time were estimated at $1 million.
 Fox Hills Mall is an enclosed regional shopping center with 140 specialty stores anchored by The Broadway, J.C. Penney and May Co. It is located between the San Diego (405) Freeway and the Marina (90) Freeway at Slauson Avenue.
 The mall is now open for regular business hours: 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Friday; 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday; and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Sunday.
