FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — In the space of just a few hours, grocery shoppers donated enough items to cram an RCMP Cruiser not once, but three times.
Donations seen included food, personal care items, toys, over $500 in gift cards, diapers, and more. All of it was provided to the Women’s Resource Society.
The Fort St. John Women’s Resource Society promotes the well-being of women in our community through education, advocacy, and social justice. They also work to provide housing for women in abusive relationships, and promote awareness regarding violence against women.
Cst. Niki Campbell with the Fort St. John RCMP says this is a community that cares. Campbell organized the ‘Cram the Cruiser’ event on Friday and said then she had confidence they will fill the cruiser with donations.
The Fort St. RCMP thanks the community, Save-on-Foods, and the Women’s Resource Society for helping make this season ‘a little brighter.’
