This coming weekend, locals are invited to cram a Revelstoke RCMP cruiser with donations for the Community Connections Food Bank.

Starting on Friday, Dec. 4 at 10 a.m. one of the RCMP’s fully marked police pick-up trucks will be parked in front of Southside Market. On Sunday, officers will move the truck to Save-On Foods.

“We are encouraging members of our community to consider adding a non-perishable food donation for the food bank to your shopping list this weekend,” Acting Detachment Commander, Sgt. Chris Dodds of the Revelstoke RCMP said in a statement. “Those generous donors are asked to simply place their donations in the bed of the RCMP pickup truck, and help us cram our cruiser for the food bank.”

The food drive initiative is designed as a no contact event to ensure physical distancing with everyone’s safety in mind.

Revelstoke RCMP Cram the Cruiser will be at Southside Market on Friday December 4, 2020 and Saturday December 5, 2020 – between 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. It will be at Save-On-Foods on December 6, 2020 and December 7, 2020 – between 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
