Pack the Police Car takes place at several locations throughout Surrey for the first two weeks of December.

Help Pack the Police Car this holiday season

Donations accepted at several locations in Surrey for the first half of December.

For the first two weeks of December, the Surrey RCMP invites the community to help Pack the Police Car with non-perishable food, gifts, cash donations, and other needed items in support of local food banks and charity programs.

Surrey RCMP officers, staff, and volunteers are holding multiple Pack the Police Car events to help families in need during the holidays at:

• Whalley/City Centre (supporting the Surrey Food Bank)

Dec. 1 2-5 p.m. at Save on Foods (10312 King George Blvd.)

Dec. 12 from 2-5 p.m. at Save on Foods (1641 152 St.)

“We know that food bank usage continues to grow exponentially and that this time of year can be especially difficult for some people in our community,” said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann. “While we encourage people to donate to food banks and charities all year long, we’re hoping to make the holidays a little brighter by packing our police cars full of food and donations for those less fortunate.”

Local food banks accept donations including grocery gift cards and monetary donations, however, they suggest the following non-perishable food donations: powdered baby formula, canned protein, peanut butter, milk powder, hot and cold cereals, meals in a tin, canned vegetables and fruit, wholegrain pasta/rice, pasta sauces, and mac and cheese. The Surrey Food Bank also accepts general baby supplies for its Tiny Bundles program and the Christmas Hamper Program accepts new unwrapped toys for children.
