he Upper Fraser Valley RCMP have completed their annual Stuff the Cruiser event and would like to thank the communities of Chilliwack, Agassiz, Hope and Boston Bar for their support and generosity.


Once again, this event was met with much success and the RCMP were able to donate a significant sum of cash as well food to the local Food Banks throughout the Upper Fraser Valley.

Chilliwack raised $1800 in cash donations and over 8000 food items. Agassiz raised $442.31 in cash and were able to fill a truck and van full of food items for the Agassiz Harrison Community Food Bank. Hope raised $1290 in cash and delivered 1058 pounds of food to Hope Community Services and Boston Bar raised $647 in cash and over 1300 pounds of food was donated to the Boston Bar/North Bend Enchancement Society Food Bank.

"This is an event that we really look forward to participating in," said Cst. Tracy Wolbeck. "It is an opportunity for us to let our hair down and engage the community in a non-enforcement environment. It is very humbling to see people coming out and giving money and food donations at a time when maybe they don't have a lot themselves."

The RCMP would also like to thank and recognize the businesses throughout the Upper Fraser Valley who donated their parking lot's and their time in support of the RCMP Stuff the Cruiser Event. Without the business support the event would not be possible.
