There will be police presence outside of Save-On-Foods across Prince George tomorrow (Saturday), but they are not looking for shoplifters.
They will be accepting donations for the Salvation Army of non-perishable food, toiletries, and non-wrapped gifts in their annual Cram-A-Cruiser event.
We will fill our police cruisers with donations as many times as we can during the four hours we are out. All donations will be provided to the Prince George Salvation Army just in time for Christmas. The Salvation Army has been generous in assisting our Victim Services program over the years and this is our way of returning that generosity, Cpl. Jennifer Cooper said in a release.
Cruisers will be outside three Save-On locations – Pine Centre, Spruceland, and College Heights – from 10:00 to 2:00, shoppers are encouraged to grab an extra couple of items to donate while they shop.
Some examples of what the RCMP are looking for include:
- Peanut butter
- Canned beans in sauce
- Rolled or instant oats
- Canned vegetables
- Pasta and sauce
- Macaroni and cheese
- Coffee or tea
- Canned fish or meat
- size 5 or 6 diapers and Pull Ups
- Canned soup
- Feminine hygiene products
