KINGSTON – It’s time to cram the cruiser.

Kings District RCMP is hosting the third annual Thanksgiving “Cram the Cruiser” food drive Oct. 6 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The event, held at Superstore in Kingston, challenges shoppers to help the Kings District RCMP and Kings County Senior Safety Program stuff a police vehicle full of non-perishable food items or monetary donations for the local Upper Room Food Bank.

“Each and every day we see people in our communities who are in need ” says RCMP Const. Kelli Gaudet.

“In order to help these people and bring attention to the great work that our local food banks do throughout the year, we hope to deliver a cruiser full of food this Thanksgiving."

Donations can also be dropped off directly at the food bank.
