The South Surrey drive will benefit Sources White Rock/South Surrey Food Bank.

Non-perishables needed include powdered baby formula, canned protein, peanut butter, hot and cold cereals, wholegrain pasta and canned vegetables. Monetary donations as well as grocery gift cards are also welcome.

Cpl. Scotty Schumann said the effort is “our little way of helping out” during a time of year that can be difficult for some.

“While we encourage people to donate year-round, we’d like to make the holidays a little brighter by packing our police cars full of food and gifts for local food banks and charities.”

Food donations may also be dropped off to the RCMP’s Newton district office (7235 137 St.) through Dec. 31.
