Local police officers, volunteers, and RCMP detachment staff were out donating their time this past Saturday to help feed seniors in need this holiday season.
On Monday, representatives from the Prince George RCMP delivered a cube van full of non-perishable food and over $3,600 in cash and gift cards to the Prince George Council of Seniors.
“The generosity of the community has been amazing,” said Prince George RCMP spokesman Cpl. Craig Douglass. “We are overwhelmed by the donations we received on behalf of the Prince George Council of Seniors and are already looking forward to doing this event next year.”
For six hours on Saturday December 3, the Prince George RCMP had police vehicles at all four local Save-On Foods Stores and asked the public to help to “Pack-A-PC” (police car) with non-perishable foods. Police officers and Detachment staff donated their time at each store alongside some of our 100 regular police volunteers. The event was hugely successful and filled an estimated 20 police cars including SUVs and a van.
