Houston police cram the cruiser with food donations

The Houston RCMP are running a "Cram the Cruiser" food drive for the local Salvation Army Food Bank Dec. 7.

The Houston RCMP are running a “Cram the Cruiser” food drive for the local Salvation Army Food Bank Dec. 7.

RCMP Sergeant Stephen Rose says anyone interested in taking part, can drop off food donations at the Houston Detachment or call them at 778-816-0008 to come and pick up a donation.

“On any given day we see people in our community that are less fortunate then ourselves,” said Sgt. Rose.

“We would like to bring attention to the great work that the Salvation army does at this time of year for the less fortunate and help lessen their work by delivering them a cruiser full of food.”

The food run is 9 to 5 p.m. Dec. 7 and the goal is to fill a cruiser (or two) with donated food to be delivered to Salvation Army just in time for Christmas, Sgt. Rose said.

There will also be free candy canes and hot chocolate at the Detachment, and the RCMP Safety Bear will visit the Detachment close to noon on Saturday.

For more information or to arrange a donation pick up before Dec. 7, please call the Houston Detachment at 250-845-2204.
