For a fourth year, Zehr's Market in Bradford supported the South Simcoe Police in their efforts to “Cram a Cruiser” for the Helping Hand Food Bank.
In fact, this year generous donors picked up hundreds of pre-packed bags, prepared by staff at Zehrs, and crammed not one, but 3 cruisers, parked outside the grocery store on October 8.
“Every year it's more successful,” said Special Constable Elisabeth Aschwanden. Not only did residents contribute non-perishable food items and toiletries, they donated just over $800 in cash, in just four hours. “It was unbelievable!” Aschwanden said.
A similar "Cram a Cruiser" event was held in Innisfil, at the Alcona Sobeys store, collecting donations for the Innisfil Food Bank, operated by the Innisfil Community Church.
