The holidays can be a struggle for families in need, which is why the Coquitlam RCMP are organizing the 6th annual ‘Cram the Cruiser’ food drive.
On December 7th, 2019, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., RCMP members and volunteers are filling up police cars with non-perishable food items donated by people in the community. All proceeds are going to SHARE Family & Community Services. Each month SHARE serves over 134 households and last year they assisted 4,131 people because of community support.
We look forward to this event every year because it is a chance for the Coquitlam RCMP to meet the public and come together, says Constable Justin Christofferson.
It’s amazing how generous people are during the holidays, which is traditionally an expensive time for families already.
With only minutes to go last year, Coquitlam RCMP’s Cram the Cruiser fundraiser surpassed previous years totals to collect 806 lbs (365 kg) of food and over $1,900 in cash for SHARE Family & Community Services and we’re hoping to beat that total this year.
- When: Between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 7th, 2019
- Where: The Real Canadian Superstore parking lot, near Westwood Street and Lougheed Highway (3000 Lougheed Hwy, Coquitlam)
Visit the SHARE Family and Community Services website for food donation ideas and other ways to make the holiday season a little brighter for a family in need.
