Last weekend, Hillcrest Village Shopping Centre hosted Cloverdale Community Cares, a food drive in partnership with Surrey RCMP and Surrey Fire Services, who asked the public to help 'Pack the Police Car' with donations.

And the public answered the first responders' call, bringing in over 500 pounds of food and $900 in cash for the Cloverdale Christmas Hamper Program and the Surrey Food Bank.

Recently, the Surrey RCMP's youth unit helped local high school students serve Christmas dinners to low income families, thanks to a partnership with the Surrey Christmas Bureau.
