The community showed up with strong support to help cram not just one or two, but three-and-a-half police cruisers with food donations in Keremeos.

The RCMP held its annual Cram the Cruiser event at Buy-Low Foods on Nov. 29, with the goal of filling two cruisers with donations.

Instead, the community went above and beyond to provide enough food for three-and-a-half cruisers and donated another $2,300 in cash to local food banks.

RCMP Victim Services workers, Laurie Lion and Deborah Vance, organized the event.

A release from the RCMP said the goal was reached within a few hours of starting to gather donations.

“The Keremeos RCMP, along with the Keremeos Food Bank, wishes to thank the community for their support,” reads a release from the RCMP.
