Chilliwack/Aggasiz/Hope/Boston Bar – “I’m hungry,” are words that bring anguish to parents of children for some families of the Upper Fraser Valley who will not have enough to eat over the Christmas season. Join us, as RCMP officers’ aid in the battle against hunger during the Holidays by hosting the Seventh Annual Stuff the Cruiser campaign.
Officers across the Upper Fraser Valley invite the public to drop by designated locations on December 12 and stuff police cruisers with non-perishable food items and cash donations to be presented by police to that local community’s Salvation Army Food Bank.
Chilliwack: “In last year’s Stuff the Cruiser event police collected almost 5,400 pounds of groceries and over $2,400 in cash for the local food bank.
