Mounties and volunteers will be filling up police cars with non-perishable food donations Saturday as part of the Coquitlam RCMP’s sixth annual Cram the Cruiser food drive.
Last year, Coquitlam RCMP officers collected 583 lb. of food and more than $1,700 for Share Family and Community Services, a total the RCMP said it is hoping to beat in 2018.
“This is a positive event where officers from the Coquitlam RCMP meet the public and come together to make our community better,” said Cpl. Michael McLaughlin. “We all have bills to pay and mouths to feed, and it’s always humbling to see how people can be so generous to help complete strangers.”
Cram the Cruiser will be held in the parking lot at the Real Canadian Superstore at Westwood Street and Lougheed Highway Saturday between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.
