Kamloops police are going to help ensure kids get what they deserve this Christmas -- by stuffing a cruiser full of cash, clothes, and toys.

On Saturday Dec. 4, 2021, Sergeant Safety Bear will lead a team of Kamloops RCMP officers and volunteers for the much anticipated return of Stuff the Cruiser, an annual collection campaign to support Christmas Amalgamated. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., police and crime prevention vehicles will be parked in front of Toys R Us at 500 Notre Dame Dr., to accept unwrapped gifts and donations for kids and youth in need.

We are really excited to be bringing Stuff the Cruiser back this year, said Corporal Dana Napier, of the Kamloops RCMP Crime Prevention Unit. Last year we had to take a break from the event because of Covid, and it was something our staff and volunteers really missed.

Along with collecting donations for a great cause, the event also serves as an opportunity for the public to get to know some of its community police partners and work together to help others and spread holiday cheer.

Through Covid, fire, and floods, the Kamloops community has always responded with overwhelming support for each other, added Cpl. Napier. We are asking again to please search your hearts for more generosity and help us Stuff a Cruiser full of gifts to support youth and children through Christmas Amalgamated.

Those who would like to contribute but are unable to attend the event, can drop unwrapped donations off at the North Shore Community Policing Office, 915 7th St., from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., closed from noon to 1 p.m. For more information, call 250-372-5009.
