Help ‘stuff the cruiser’ and stock the food bank Saturday

Chilliwack RCMP will be out again this Saturday, helping to Stuff the Cruiser for the local food bank

The annual Stuff the Cruiser event will take place in Chilliwack on Saturday

RCMP members of the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment will once again volunteer their time to support Community Food Banks.  The annual Stuff the Cruiser event will take place on Saturday, December 6 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“The Stuff the Cruiser food drive is our way of providing some necessities to those who are less fortunate during this special time of year,” said Cst. Ashley St. Germaine.  RCMP members will volunteer their time in Red Serge and, in partnership with community grocery stores, seek contributions of non-perishable food items or cash donations.  A marked Police vehicle will be at each location, with members in uniform and Red Serge, with the goal being to fill the vehicle to the brim – Stuff the Cruiser.

The locations are:

Chilliwack: Save-on Foods – Salish Plaza;

Save-on Foods – Vedder Plaza

Hope:  Cooper’s Foods

Agassiz: Super Value – Cheam Avenue

The Stuff the Cruiser event has become a major contributor for the Food Banks which are administered by the Salvation Army in Chilliwack, Hope Community Services and Agassiz-Harrison Community Services.  In 2013 this event resulted in donations totaling over $23,000 and a total of 18, 413 pounds of food.

For further information contact: Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611; Agassiz RCMP at 604-796-2211 or Hope RCMP 604-869-7750.
