RCMP hosts Cram the Cruiser event Saturday

Food drive takes place in Langford from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Real Canadian Superstore

The West Shore RCMP is looking for a whole lot of good folks to help Cram the Cruiser.

While similar initiatives have been held on other parts of the Island to assist local food banks in the past, this is the first time the West Shore RCMP has gotten on board, said Const. Matthew Baker, media relations spokesperson for the detachment.

“We hope the public steps up big time to help out the Goldstream Food Bank with donations of non-perishable food items or cash,” Baker said. “It’s a great cause to help those who are in need, especially at this time of the year.”

The event takes place this Saturday, Dec. 2 in Langford from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Real Canadian Superstore, 835 Langford Pkwy.
