Terrace RCMP’s Cram a Cruiser campaign raised four times what it expected to last weekend.

We surpassed our goal of cramming the Chevy Tahoe,” said an RCMP press release this afternoon. “Four police cruisers were crammed with food donations and a total of $2400 was raised.”

The event saw auxiliary RCMP officers out collecting cash donations and non-perishable food items December 10 for Terrace Churches Food Bank and the Salvation Army emergency food bank.

Eight officers in uniform were out from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at Walmart, Save On Foods, Real Canadian Wholesale Club and Safeway.

Originally, the event was going to see auxiliary officers walking alongside the cruiser which was to follow the Parade of Lights route. Local scouts were to have been there too, collecting donations with the officers. This wasn’t possible due to the parade’s cancellation.

Never the less, RCMP say the event went on to be a big success.

The Terrace RCMP Auxiliaries would like to thank the citizens and businesses of Terrace for making the Cram a Cruiser event such a success,” said the release.
