The Rainy River District OPP would like to invite the public to come out and support efforts to fill the local food banks by participating in the annual “Stuff-a-Cruiser” event.
It is scheduled for this Saturday (Dec. 8) from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at various locations across the district, including Canada Safeway, The Place Fine Foods, and Walmart in Fort Frances, Cloverleaf Grocery in Emo, and Beaver Mills Market in Rainy River.
Members of various agencies, including the OPP, Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, Canada Border Services Agency, CN Police, and the Treaty #3 Police Service, will be in attendance to accept your donation, whether it is one item or a cart full.
Any amount you donate will help local families in need.
This year, the food banks are hoping that individuals will donate more meat and sources of protein.
A full list of items needed can be found at www.CelebratingDiversity.ca
As well, organizers of this year's event still are looking for volunteers to assist in collecting items.
If you are interested in volunteering, you may sign up at www.CelebratingDiversity.ca
You may sign up for as long as you wish, at whichever location you wish.
Come out and make our day a success. Let's fight hunger together here in Rainy River District.
