Time to stuff the cruiser in Fraser Valley

Agassiz SuperValu partners up with RCMP for food bank fundraiser

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, Dec. 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.

In Agassiz the cruiser will be parked at SuperValu. In Chilliwack, the locations are Save-on Foods in Salish Plaza and the Vedder Plaza, and Cooper’s Foods in Garrison Crossing.

In Hope, a cruiser will be parked at Cooper’s Foods.

The Stuff the Cruiser is a major contributor for food banks at the Salvation Army in Chilliwack, Hope Community Services and Agassiz-Harrison Community Services.  In 2013 this event resulted in donations totaling more than $23,000 and a total of 18,413 pounds of food.
