Chilliwack’s mounties invite the community to Stuff the Cruiser

The goal of the 10-year campaign is fill a cruiser with items for local food banks

The Chilliwack RCMP is inviting the community to their 10th annual Stuff the Cruiser event, which sees officers and the public working to fill a cruiser with non-perishable groceries and cash donations for local Salvation Army food banks.

“With the remarkable support of the Chilliwack community we collected over 5,000 pounds of groceries together with cash donations during last year’s Stuff the Cruiser event,” said Constable Julie Bauer. And “we are aiming to exceed last year’s totals” this year.

To help the RCMP stuff their cruisers, join them on Saturday, Dec. 8, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at one of the following three Save-On locations:

• 46020 Yale Road

• 31-6014 Vedder Road

• 45635 Tamihi Way

“We invite everyone to drop by any of our Stuff the Cruiser locations across the Upper Fraser Valley, meet your local officers, and give a hand to ensure no family goes hungry over the Christmas Season,” said Corporal Mike Rail, spokesperson for the RCMP’s Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment.

You can also donate in the following communities on the same date:

Agassiz: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Super Valu

Hope: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Save-On- Foods

Boston Bar: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Canyon Tire
