Pulling through the drive-thru on your way to work is helping out charity this week.

After helping to buy a new fridge and freezer for the Timmins Food Bank, the Timmins Chamber of Commerce is looking to help fill it.

Tuesday, April 16 from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m., the organization is holding a drive-thru food bank donation campaign.

To help out, all you have to do is pull up in front of the food bank located at 85 Spruce St. N. and someone will pick up the items.

In December, the chamber's 100 People Who Care campaign supported the food bank with a $10,000 donation to help buy a new industrial fridge and freezer. 

Some of the items being suggested to donate are: small bags of baby carrots, small bags of broccoli, oranges, a dozen eggs, as well as any frozen vegetable or frozen fruit.
