FAIR OAKS (CBS13) — After a tough year, many are finding new ways to help out their community in a time of need.

Three organizations in Fair Oaks are coming together to set up a drive-thru food bank. They will be handing out free produce and bringing a smile to people’s faces with their group of fuzzy dogs.

“It’s been a very tough year this year, and we just want to give a little bit of hope to those in our area. And that’s why we brought the dogs out also because dogs always bring a smile to people’s faces,” a volunteer said.
