Packing it in for the Surrey Food Bank

The Surrey Food Bank received an injection of support for its new 65+ seniors project, thanks to the Pack the Police Car food drive.

Thanks to the public’s generosity, the Surrey RCMP’s Pack the Police Car drive brought in more than 3,000 pounds of food for the Surrey Food Bank.

The four-day campaign also raised more than $3,300 in cash in support of the Surrey Food Bank’s new 65-plus seniors distribution depot.

“This is a tremendous showing of support from the community,” said Marilyn Hermann, executive director of the Surrey Food Bank.

Insp. Garry Begg praised the generosity of Surreyites in once again supporting the initiative.

“Our community is always willing to give and this time, made a true and positive difference in the lives of our senior citizens who need it the most.”

Surrey RCMP members and a patrol car accepted food and cash donations at four grocery store locations Aug. 14 to 17, including the Price Smart Foods stores in Cloverdale and Clayton.
