Help Mounties cram their cruiser

NANAIMO - RCMP team up with Country Grocer this weekend to raise food for families.

Nanaimo RCMP and Country Grocer have joined forces again for Cram the Cruiser, an annual drive to raise food for local families in need at Christmas.

This year’s event happens Saturday (Dec. 17) 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Country Grocer’s Chase River Market Place location at 82 Twelfth St., where Mounties will be filling police vehicles with food.

“Country Grocer makes it easy to donate by having pre-packed bags filled with food items ready and waiting beside the till. These bags can be purchased for $10 and each contains approximately $15 of food items,” said Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman, in a press release. “Donations of food or money will also be accepted throughout the day.”
