RCMP cruisers stuffed to the brim

If you dropped food or cash into a police cruiser in the Fraser Valley on Saturday, you helped make the Stuff the Cruiser Event a success.

Cash donations doubled this year, while food donations stayed about the same, said Cst. Tracy Wolbeck.

In Agassiz, $533 was raised along with two truck loads of food. In Hope, $619 was raised along with 1,000 pounds of food, while Boston Bar raised 1,125 pounds of food and $904. In Chilliwack, almost $3,000 was raised, along with 7,500 food items.

All of the food and cash collected will stay in the community it was collected from, and forwarded to either the Salvation Army or food bank.

"So much hard work goes into this event to make it a success every year," said Wolbeck.  "Officers use their own time to organize and attend the event and the public is always so supportive of our efforts."
