Stuffing the Cruiser in Fraser Cascade

Local RCMP detachments join in popular food bank drive

The Hope and Boston Bar RCMP are joining in the Stuff the Cruiser event in early December.  This is an event that began in Chilliwack in 2009 and has grown throughout the Upper Fraser Valley area, with Hope and Boston Bar taking on their own events.

“This is a really great way for the RCMP to directly engage the communities they police,” said Cst. Tracy Wolbeck.  “The event provides a common goal for the police and the public to work towards together, helping people in need.”

All of the proceeds raised through the event will go to the local food bank.

The Stuff the Cruiser event in Hope is scheduled for December 11 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event will be held at Cooper’s Foods located at 559 Old Hope Princeton Way.

The Boston Bar event will be held on December 10 from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. at Kal Tire located at 48075 Trans Canada Highway.

The proceeds from the Boston Bar event will be going to the Boston Bar/North Bend Enchancement Society Food Bank. The Boston Bar Citizens on Patrol will be on hand to serve hot beverages during their inaugural year.
