How could the Agassiz-Harrison community top stuffing two cruisers full of donated food, toys and cash? Would you believe four stuffed cruisers?
Sgt. Mike Sargent of the Agassiz RCMP detachment said the community donated $1,500 and stuffed four police cruisers with new toy donations and non-perisable food during the 12th annual Stuff the Cruiser event. All donations go to support Agassiz-Harrison Community Services.
This matches the $1,500 in cash donations during 2019’s event (2020’s was cancelled due to COVID-19) and doubles the number of cruisers packed with donated items. Volunteers from Agassiz Speedway also gathered bottles and cans for donation.
“Great support from this great community!” Sargent added.
Sargent confirmed between the Agassiz and Hope detachments, communities across the eastern Fraser Valley raised close to $15,000 with special donations from Save-On Foods, Buy-Low Foods, Kal Tire and Kelton Construction. The Hope detachment collected more than 1,400 pounds of food.
