Stuff the Cruiser event coming to Hope

Non-perishable foods, toys, and cash donations all accepted to help fill up police cruisers

Would you like to spread some holiday cheer this weekend and help provide for those in need?

The RCMP are inviting the community to their 13th annual Stuff the Cruiser event, where officers hope to stuff their police cruisers with non-perishable food items, new toys, and cash donations.

Taking place in Hope this Saturday (Dec. 3), from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., officers will be at three locations — Save-On Foods, Buy-Low Foods, and Kal Tire — ready to receive donations for the Hope Food Bank. Remembering the community’s past generosity from the years before, the RCMP hopes that the people will continue the tradition of giving and help them provide for those in need this holiday season.

“As police officers, we’re involved in trying to make the community better. And we know that there are people in the community that are in need,” says Staff Sergeant Dwayne Farlin. “And this is our way of giving back to the community and ensuring that people have food and goods and services at Christmas. The community has always demonstrated that they are huge supporters, not only of food banks, but but of the initiatives we take as well. So, we appreciate that. And we want the community to come together to assist those in need.”

Stuff the Cruiser is an annual event that has been taking place every December for over a decade. With the communities of the Eastern Fraser Valley all participating, close to $15,000 in donations were raised last year. This includes donations from Save-On Foods, Buy-Low Foods, Kal Tire and Kellton Construction.
