Kelowna and Lake Country Mounties were overwhelmed once again by the generous donations, from residents of the Central Okanagan, to this year’s Cram the Cruiser for the Lake Country Food Bank.

This year’s RCMP Cram the Cruiser saw residents of all ages come out to donate to the annual Lake Country Food Bank fundraiser, states Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey.

We are truly grateful for all our donors, especially those who return year after year. Keith Stutters of Stutters Disaster Kleenup in Kelowna personally attended the 6th Annual Cram the Cruiser event to deliver a truly amazing $3,000 donation to the Lake Country Food Bank, further states Cpl. O’Donaghey. While the owner operators of Kangaroo Creek Farm in Lake Country dropped off a $1,000 donation for their local food bank.

Together we raised total of just over 880 lbs of donated items, including non-perishable foods, and $7,796.76 in cash and cheques. Since the inaugural event in 2012, RCMP Cram the Cruiser has raised a total of over 11,000 lbs of donated items and well over $28,500 in cash and cheque solely for the Lake Country Food Bank.

The RCMP would like to extend our sincere thanks to our fellow partners and first responders of the Lake Country Volunteer Fire Department, as well as our amazing sponsors who all helped to make this year’s event such a success, says Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey.

The Kelowna and Lake Country RCMP would also like to congratulate Bruce and Evelyn Cumming, of Lake Country, who were the lucky winners of this year’s grand prize draw, donated by WestJet, a gift of flight voucher for one round trip flight for two people to any scheduled WestJet destination, adds Cpl. O’Donaghey.
