Surrey RCMP is once again inviting the community to “Pack the Police Car.”

Suggested food donations include canned vegetables and fruit, soup, crackers, snacks, canned meat/fish, pasta and rice. Other items that will help fill the need include grocery gift cards, toiletries, new winter accessories and new, unwrapped toys and gifts.
