Cram a cruiser for the Strathcona Christmas Bureau

On Tuesday, December 10, Strathcona County Enforcement Services will be collecting donations at a local Save-on-Foods for the Strathcona Christmas Bureau. Enforcement Services staff will be onsite with a police cruiser and are encouraging shoppers to cram the cruiser with donations.

The Strathcona Christmas Bureau distributes about 500 hampers annually to County residents. Each hamper is filled with food and gifts for each member of the family.

Gift suggestions include books, toiletries, art supplies, sports equipment and gift cards. Non-perishable donation suggestions include:

  • high protein food such as peanut butter
  • canned chili, salmon, beans, ham and stew
  • oatmeal
  • pancake syrup and mix
  • pet food
  • baby formula, food and diapers
  • toiletries
  • school supplies

All donations collected from the Cram a Cruiser event stay in Strathcona County, in support of the Strathcona Christmas Bureau and Strathcona Food Bank.

Enforcement Services will be collecting donations on Tuesday, December 10 at Save-on-Foods, 60 Broadway Boulevard, from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m.
