Agassiz RCMP invite the public to Stuff the Cruiser

The annual donation drive will be taking place at Agassiz’s SuperValu on Dec. 7

Agassiz RCMP are inviting the community to help them “Stuff the Cruiser” in support of Agassiz-Harrison Community Services this season.

On Saturday, Dec. 7, the Agassiz RCMP will be at the SuperValu on Cheam Avenue with a police car to help bring in donations for community service’s food bank and Christmas hampers.

Officers will be collecting non-perishable food items, as well as new toys and cash donations. They hope to exceed the donations collected last year: 7oo pounds of food and $700 were brought in through Agassiz.

(The Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment collected a total of 14,000 pounds of food and $9,000 for local organizations.)

Anyone wanting to contribute that is unable to make it on the Saturday can also drop off donations at the Agassiz RCMP office between Monday and Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
