‘Stuff-A-Cruiser’ set for Saturday

Rainy River District OPP detachments will be hosting their annual “Stuff-A-Cruiser” event this Saturday (Dec. 8) in Fort Frances and Emo.
With the assistance of its policing partners, Treaty #3 Police and CN Police, officers will be outside Canada Safeway, The Place, and Walmart in Fort Frances, as well as Cloverleaf Grocery in Emo, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Officers will be collecting non-perishable food items in support of the Salvation Army, United Native Friendship Centre, Sunset Country Métis, and Fort Frances Volunteer Bureau.
All items collected will be turned over to these organizations to assist with the goal that everyone in our community is able to enjoy the festive season.
The “wish list” of items includes canned soup, vegetables, fruit, and meat (i.e., tuna and salmon), as well as baked beans, turkey, ham, Kraft Dinner, pasta, instant potatoes, cereal, peanut butter and jam, tea/coffee, and packets of sugar, salt, and pepper.
Also needed is canned pasta, cranberry sauce, Stove Top stuffing, pancake mix and syrup, powdered milk, boxed juices, and granola bars.
If you would like to volunteer at “Stuff-A-Cruiser,” leave a message for A/Sgt. Anne McCoy at 274-3322.
