Pack the Police Car returns to Surrey

Surrey RCMP are inviting the community to help them collect items for the less fortunate.

Surrey RCMP are inviting the community to help them collect items for the food bank and other charity programs in the city, through their Pack the Police Car initiative.

This month, officers, auxiliaries, staff and volunteers will be at four locations:

• Save-on-Foods in Guildford (9014 152 St., from 1-6 p.m. Dec. 4),

• Save-on-Foods in Cloverdale (18710 Fraser Hwy., from 2:30-8 p.m. Dec. 4)

• Thrifty Foods in South Surrey (15745 Croydon Dr., from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Dec. 10)

• Save-on-Foods in Newton (7320 King Geoge Blvd., from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Dec. 31).

The South Surrey drive will benefit Sources White Rock/South Surrey Food Bank.

Non-perishables needed include powdered baby formula, canned protein, peanut butter, hot and cold cereals, wholegrain pasta and canned vegetables. Monetary donations as well as grocery gift cards are also welcome.

Cpl. Scotty Schumann said the effort is “our little way of helping out” during a time of year that can be difficult for some.

“While we encourage people to donate year-round, we’d like to make the holidays a little brighter by packing our police cars full of food and gifts for local food banks and charities.”

Food donations may also be dropped off to the RCMP’s Newton district office (7235 137 St.) through Dec. 31.
