‘Stuff a Cruiser’ a success

the OPP

Rainy River District OPP hosted its first-annual “Stuff a Cruiser” event in Atikokan on Saturday.
With the assistance of our policing partners, officers were stationed outside Atikokan Foodland and the Atikokan economic development office from 3-7 p.m.
Together, we stuffed seven cruisers full of non-perishable food items to help support the Atikokan Native Friendship Centre/Ashandiwin Food Bank, Atikokan Christmas Cheer, and the Faith Lutheran Church food bank.
All items were turned over to these organizations to assist with the goal that everyone in our community is able to enjoy the festive season.
The OPP would like to thank all the volunteers and community members for their help in making this event a success.
Meanwhile, a reminder the local OPP’s “Stuff a Cruiser” campaign will be in Fort Frances on Saturday, Dec. 10.
From 10 a.m.-4 p.m. that day, OPP cruisers being located in front of Walmart, Safeway, and The Place in Fort Frances, as well as Cloverleaf in Emo, collecting donations of non-perishable food items from the public.
These donations will go towards supporting the programs run by the local Salvation Army, UNFC, and Sunset Country Métis, as well as the Fort Frances Volunteer Bureau for its annual community Christmas dinner.
