RCMP collecting items for the food bank on Dec. 15

The annual Stuff the Cruiser event will return to Agassiz on Dec. 15.

This is the Upper Fraser Valley’s fourth time holding the event, in various locations from Chilliwack to Hope.

All proceeds go to local food banks to help support families in need throughout the holidays.

“This is our way of engaging the community in a positive way every year and it’s an event that we all look forward to being a part of,” said Cst. Tracy Wolbeck. “This event brings the police and the public together for a common goal and charity really tends to unify a community. We are really proud to be involved in this.”

In Agassiz, a police car will be parked at Super Value at 7024 Cheam Road, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The needs of the food banks change from year to year however, items they are always looking for are diapers, baby formula, canned fruits and vegetables and soups.
