Cowichan cops ready to cram a cruiser to help benefit the food bank

Cowichan’s auxiliary Mounties are once again teaming up to raise donations for the local food bank.

The second-annual Cram A Cruiser event happens Saturday, Nov. 26 between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the Beverly Corners Thrifty Foods parking lot.

North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP detachment’s auxiliaries will be there in uniform, collecting non-perishable food items and cash donations for the Cowichan Valley Food Basket.

“Last year, this event was a huge success and it helped many families in need in the Cowichan Valley,” Cpl. Kevin Day said in an email to media.

“There will be police vehicles on hand, and donations will be placed in and on the vehicles. Our hope is that Cowichan Valley residents give generously again this year.”
