Ice Cold Air Discount Auto Repair asks customers to make an appointment beforehand and to bring their food donations when dropping their vehicles off.

The repair shop will only accept new, non-perishable food items that have a clear store label.

“Our customers and community have been very good to us for over 40 years, and supporting worthy local charities is an excellent way for us to give back to the community and our customers for their support,” said Denham.
