The 2021 Keian’s Holiday Wish Toy Drive and Pack the Police Car charitable campaigns have come to a close for another year.

Through generous support and donations from the community, RCMP officers, staff and volunteers, the toys, cash and food donations will help those in need in our community.

From November 16 to December 16, 2021, the Surrey RCMP collected new unwrapped toys for BC Children’s Hospital and the Surrey Memorial Hospital in memory of six-year old Keian Blundell. See previous news release.

With the generosity of our community over 1,000 toys and more than $9,000 in cash was donated in hopes of bringing a little holiday cheer to sick children and their families.

Surrey RCMP’s Pack the Police Car event took place on December 10 at three Save-on-Foods locations. Without hesitation, Surrey residents opened their hearts and wallets donating over 1,100 lbs of food and close to $2,500 in cash. The donations collected went directly to local food banks.

Thank you to the community for stepping up once again and supporting some of the most vulnerable in our community, said Insp Harm Dosange, Community Support & Safety Officer. Both charitable campaigns are important to our officers and staff and it is wonderful to see such a positive response from the community. We thank you for your continued support.
