A record number of donations were collected this month from the public and Surrey RCMP employees and staff in support of two holiday themed goodwill initiatives.

On December 14th, 2017 Surrey RCMP officers donated over 10,000 pounds of food and over $7,000 cash to local food banks and Christmas hamper programs as part of the detachment’s annual "Pack the Police Car" events held across the city between December 1st to December 14th. The donations will help those struggling in our community and ensure that no one goes without this holiday season.

This annual event always brings out the best in our community and we are so thankful to residents for supporting this worthwhile cause, says Corporal Scotty Schumann. Your kindness and generosity will ensure those struggling within our community are properly taken care of this holiday season.

For more information on the beneficiaries of Pack the Police Car, please visit the Surrey Food Bank, Sources Food Bank, and Cloverdale Christmas Hamper Program.

On December 19th, 2017 over 4,200 toys and $3,600 were delivered to BC Children’s Hospital as part of Surrey RCMP’s contribution to Keian’s Holiday Wish Toy Drive. Toys and cash donations were collected from the public and employees and staff at Surrey RCMP’s six offices.

Thank you to everyone who donated so generously, says Constable Mark Peterse. We were overwhelmed by the tremendous response by the community and our own staff. The toys will help make this Christmas that much brighter for children and their families at BC Children’s Hospital.
