Terrace RCMP fill four police cars for 9th annual Cram a Cruiser event

Almost $2,000 was collected for local food banks, charity

Terrace RCMP are making it another memorable holiday season following their 9th annual Cram a Cruiser event that took place Dec. 7.

In total, four police vehicles were loaded with food collected by Terrace RCMP staff, officers, auxiliary members and volunteers — along with almost $2,000 in cash and gift card donations.

From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. that cold day, police vehicles were parked in front of Save On Foods, Safeway, and Real Canadian Wholesale to collect donations which were then divided equally to the Terrace Churches Food Bank and the Terrace Salvation Army in preparation for the holidays.

Last year, their event saw an estimated 5,000 to 5,500 pounds of food donated in Terrace, with just more than $2,000 in cash and gift cards.

There are a lot of people who don’t talk about their struggles, says Cst. Crystal Evelyn, community liaison and media relations officer for Terrace RCMP in a previous press release.

It could be your neighbour, it could be a family member, it could be someone you pass by and smile at every day without realizing the financial hardships they may be facing. By coming together as a community during events like this, we’re helping provide warmth and kindness to those giving and to those receiving.
