Fill ‘er up – with donations

Friday in Cloverdale, help Surrey RCMP Pack the Police Car in support of Christmas hamper program

Surrey RCMP are hosting a community food drive this Friday at Hillcrest Village shopping centre in support of the Cloverdale Christmas Hamper Program.

Supporters are asked to help ‘Pack the Police Car’ with donations of non-perishable food, personal care items and gifts for children and teens.

Surrey RCMP officers, auxiliary constables, staff and volunteers will be at Save On Foods at 18710 Fraser Highway from 2:30 to 8 p.m.

The event is hosted by Save On Foods, the Cloverdale/Port Kells Surrey RCMP Detachment, Pacific Community Church, City of Surrey and Hillcrest Village.

It’s one of four locations for Pack the Police Car, a city-wide campaign in support of local food banks and charity programs.

“This time of year can be especially hard for some families and individuals in our community and this is our little way of helping out,” says Surrey RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann. “While we encourage people to donate year-round, we’d like to make the holidays a little brighter by packing our police cars full of food and gifts for local food banks and charities.”

Surrey RCMP will also be out at the Guildford Save on Foods at 9014 152 Street Friday (Dec. 4) from 1-6 p.m., in support of the Surrey Food Bank, which is also accepting general baby supplies for its Tiny Bundles program, along with food, gifts and cash.

They’ll be at the Thrifty Foods at 15745 Croydon Drive in South Surrey on Dec. 10 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., in support of Sources Food Bank,

The final Pack the Police Car event is at the Newton Save on Foods at 7320 King George Boulevard on Friday, Dec. 31 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m..
