1100lbs Pounds of Food Collected in Support of the Kindersley & District Food Bank

Kindersley RCMP teamed up with several local businesses on Friday, May 6 to “fill the police truck”, collecting donations for the local food bank. “We have a community that is very supportive of the RCMP in Kindersley so our officers realize it’s important for us to give back when we get the opportunity,” shares S/Sgt. Kevin Peterson, Kindersley Detachment Commander. “Events like these not only help a worthwhile cause, but show that we are part of the community and are willing to help out beyond our regular policing duties.”

Cpl. Amy Forbes helped spearhead the drive in support of the Kindersley & District Food Bank – the second one she’s helped organize within the past six months in the community. “Many people donate food and money to the Food Bank around the holidays, but then the donations often decrease into the spring and summer months. The demand is always there. It feels great to give back to the community that does so much to support us as RCMP members.” Cpl. Forbes reports two RCMP trucks were filled with food and organizing committee also received a large amount of cash donations.

In total, $1,895 was collected, along with the 1100 pounds of food donations for the Kindersley & District Food Bank. A big thank-you to the Kindersley Co-op and Puddles in My Garden Greenhouse for their collaboration and the community of Kindersley and surrounding areas for their contributions!
