Cash, Toys and Groceries mark a successful Cram a Cruiser Saturday in Prince Rupert

It was another strong response from the community
for Saturday's Cram-A-Cruiser hosted by the RCMP
and Salvation Army at Prince Rupert's  Canada Safeway 

The Prince Rupert RCMP are handing out some thank you's this morning, that after another successful Cram-a-Cruiser Campaign in aid of the Salvation Army's Food and Christmas programs.

The event hosted at the Canada Safeway on Saturday saw just over 900 dollars in cash donations and a near capacity Salvation Army Van full of toys and food donations as Prince Rupert residents joined in on the holiday spirt of the event.

That despite some strong downpours from Mother Nature along the way through the day.

The RCMP made note of the success of the day through their social media stream.

 Joining in on the donation day event were members of the Prince Rupert Fire Rescue Department, who made the walk across First Avenue West from the Fire Hall to donate a volume of grocery items to the day's haul by the local Detachment members on hand.

See the Prince Rupert RCMP Social media stream here, for more notes and a few more snapshots from the successful weekend event.

With Christmas just a few days away the Salvation Army now puts its focus on its home mailer and Red Kettle Appeal campaigns which are currently underway to help provide for those in need in the community.
