‘We were amazed’: Terrace residents donate food, cash at 11th annual Cram a Cruiser event

Donations to be shared between Salvation Army, Terrace Churches Food Bank, Ksan Place

The Terrace RCMP’s 11th annual Cram a Cruiser event hauled in thousands of dollars in cash donations, gifts and groceries to be shared between the Salvation Army, Terrace Churches Food Bank and Ksan Place on Dec. 4.

RCMP volunteers, sheriffs, bylaw officers and other volunteers collected an estimated 4,000 pounds of food items and over $2,200 in cash donations outside the Terrace Safeway, Save On Foods and Wholesale Club.

“We were amazed at the amount of food and cash that was delivered,” said Terrace Churches Food Bank’s Paul Moravec in an RCMP media release.

Last year’s Cram a Cruiser event primarily collected monetary donations in lieu of food items due to the COVID-19 pandemic and associated public health restrictions.
