Mounties partnering with local businesses for Cram-A-Cruiser event

Donations collected at the 2022 Cram-A-Cruiser event.

Prince George RCMP is giving Santa a hand again this year, gathering donations of non-perishable food, toiletries and un-wrapped gifts for the Salvation Army.

On Saturday, December 2, 2023, from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m., Mounties and community volunteers will be outside three Save-On-Foods locations throughout Prince George, to see how many times we can cram a police cruiser full of donations in time for the holiday season. Shoppers are encouraged to grab an extra item or two on their way through the shopping centre to donate on their way back out.

“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,” said Cpl. Jennifer Cooper, Media Relations Officer for the Prince George RCMP.

They will be collecting donations of non-perishable food items, cash and gift cards. Here are some examples of items we are looking for:

  • Peanut butter
  • Canned beans in sauce
  • Rolled or instant oats
  • Canned vegetables
  • Pasta and sauce
  • Macaroni and cheese
  • Rice
  • Coffee or tea
  • Canned fish or meat
  • size 5 or 6 diapers and Pull Ups
  • Canned soup
  • Feminine hygiene products

If you are interested in volunteering to help out with this event, please contact the Prince George RCMP Community Policing office at 250-561-3366 for more information.
