Gallery: Cram the cruiser in Houston

The annual cram the cruiser fundraiser for the Houston Salvation Army Christmas hampers was on Dec. 2, 2017 in front of the recently reopened grocery store, Buy-Low Foods. There were police vehicles parked out front ready to be filled with non-perishable food donations that go to help those in need. Of all the previous years, this year had the most donations to date. A total of nine police cruisers were filled and a total of $1400 raised. Buy-Low Foods also donated a $500 shopping spree to the Houston Salvation Army, where store supervisor Rachel Chapman will return to purchase any low or needed items for the hampers. The Houston Salvation Army thrift store is still accepting donations and the can be dropped off at 3429 10 Street. (Ann Marie Hak photos)
