Clinton RCMP helped to raise non-perishable food, toys and cash donations this past weekend for the Clinton Food Bank.

On Saturday December 12, 2020 the Clinton RCMP, and the Elizabeth Fry Foundation partnered together to host a drive-thru food and toy drive in Clinton. This Clinton RCMP Stuff a Cruiser was an inaugural event.

The RCMP Stuff a Cruiser event was responsible for raising 1,162 lbs of non-perishable food, over 400 toys and $4,400 dollars in cash for the Clinton Food Bank.

We are so pleased with the generosity of our small community of only 650 residents, states Cst. Marika Masters of the Clinton RCMP. We’d like to thank not only all those who came out to donate to our cause, but the Elizabeth Fry Foundation for their collaboration. I am certain that the food, toys and funds we raised together will have such a positive impact on so many families this holiday season.

We are extremely overwhelmed by the support of our community, said Brenda Horsley, President of the Clinton Food Bank. Thanks to Stuff the Cruiser this year, even more people in need are aware of the essential services we offer.
