Community Connections, the Revelstoke RCMP and Save-On-Foods are partnering in a fundraiser to collect donations for the food bank.

The RCMP will have one of their cruisers parked outside of Save-On this Thursday, July 21 from 2–5 p.m. Officers will be collecting donations with the goal of filling up the police car and delivering the goods to the food bank.

Patti Larson, the coordinator of the food bank, said the fundraiser is needed to help fill up their shelves, which are empty and in need of donations to get them through the summer months.

“We are in desperate need of staple items such as: tuna, salmon, other meats, pasta and sauces, chunky soups, cereal, juice, canned vegetables/fruit and healthy snacks for our children,” she wrote in an e-mail to the Review.
