Hope and Boston Bar RCMP are gearing up this year’s Stuff the Cruiser events in December.

The local detachments are collecting donations for the food bank on Dec. 10 and 11.

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

Police cruisers will be parked at Cooper’s Foods in Hope on Dec. 11 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Boston Bar event takes place on Dec. 10 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Kal Tire, located at 48075 Trans Canada Highway. Proceeds from this event will benefit the Boston Bar/North Bend Enhancement Society Food Bank. The Boston Bar Citizens on Patrol will be on hand to serve hot beverages during their inaugural year.
