"It is our hope that the generous citizens of Prince George and surrounding areas purchase an extra item or two while shopping and help load the police vehicle on the way out of the store," RCMP said.

Items suggested for donation include canned vegetables, canned fruits packed in water, 100-per-cent unsweetened fruit juice or fruit sauce, oatmeal or other hot cereals, rice or barley, pastas, canned fish, chicken, ham or corned beef, peanut butter, canned or dry beans and lentils, canned evaporated milk, milk powder or shelf-stable UHT milk, fortified plant-based beverages (soy, rice or coconut), canned soups or stews (low in sodium preferred), facial tissue, toilet tissue, paper towel (individually-wrapped packages appreciated).

Cash and grocery store gift cards will also be accepted.

Last year the event filled over 22 police cars and raised over $4,000 for the Council of Seniors.
