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.
