Sask. RCMP Gave Back in December

This December, the Saskatchewan RCMP participated in a number of initiatives to give back to our communities. Here are just a few of them:

Hudson Bay Fill the Cruiser Campaign: At the end of November, Hudson Bay RCMP joined the Hudson Bay Family & Support Centre and the Red Apple as they collectively took part in an annual ‘Fill the Cruiser’ campaign. Officers helped gather toys and monetary donations for the Hudson Bay Family & Support Centre.

The Hudson Bay Family & Support Centre took to Facebook and expressed their gratitude for the support from the Hudson Bay RCMP and community partners this holiday season.

Kindersley Cram the Cruiser Event: On December 12, Kindersley RCMP partnered with the Kindersley Co-op and hosted their Third Annual Cram the Cruiser event.

Officers stood outside the Kindersley Co-op and assisted community members as they bought bags of food to donate, filling the box of an RCMP truck. Kindersley RCMP, with the assistance of Kindersley Co-op and the generosity of the community, helped generate $376 in cash donations and 318 bags of food to be donated to the Kindersley Food Bank.

Yorkton Toy Drive: On December 2, Yorkton RCMP held their Third Annual Toy Drive for Kids. Officers were located at a Yorkton Wal-Mart and were collecting toy and cash donations for the Yorkton Salvation Army.

Yorkton RCMP, with the help of the generous citizens of Yorkton, were able to fill the backseat of a police truck to the roof with toys, and $1378.52 in cash donations was collected.

Assiniboia Community Decorate the Detachment: On December 10, Assiniboia RCMP held a Decorate the Detachment event, welcoming Assiniboia residents to join them in preparing for the holiday season. Assiniboia residents of all ages attended the event, and even a few fur friends came to help.

The officers provided the community members with hot chocolate, apple cider, and cookies while they worked together to spread holiday fun throughout the community.

Battlefords Food Drive: On December 9 from 11:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., Battleford RCMP worked alongside local partners Walmart, Co-op, and Sobeys to raise money for the Battleford District Food & Resource Centre.

Officers were stationed outside each partnering business collecting food, toys, and cash donations. Local business, Four-K Auto, joined the festivities, charitably donating snacks and drinks to the officers collecting the food items.

Battlefords RCMP estimate over 15,000 pounds of food was collected, as well as over $1300 in cash.

Eston Christmas Parade: During the evening of December 13, Eston Detachment participated in the Eston Christmas parade.

Officers decorated a police cruiser with lights and holiday inflatables and led the parade through town. Eston RCMP have participated in this event for several years, helping spread some cheer during the holiday season.
