North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP are calling this year’s Cram the Cruiser campaign “wildly successful”.

The goal of their Dec. 11 efforts outside Save-On Foods was to raise money and toys for the less privileged this holiday season.

Full-time officers joined auxiliaries to collect goods alongside the folks at Juice FM who were on hand with their Stuff the Truck campaign, another charity event aimed at collecting non perishables for food bank.

The gifts collected will benefit local families by way of the Salvation Army and the Duncan Basket Society, according to police.

For their Cram the Cruiser campaign, “in total, approximately $500 was collected along with enough toys to fill the back of the First Nations Police truck, including the back seat,” said Const. Joe Power. “Thank you to all that contributed their time and gifts to our valley citizens.”
