Spain's Carla Suarez Navarro used some of the downtime during the lockdown period to volunteer at a Spanish food bank in her native Gran Canaria and helped to keep their shelves stocked. The Spaniard shared some photos of her visit on her Twitter account saying, "I was delighted to do my part as a volunteer in Las Palmas"
The Spaniard had earlier also asked her fans through a message on social media to support the food banks in their areas.
