Back on May 6, Kindersley RCMP "filled the police truck”, collecting donations for the local food bank. Members of the Kindersley Food Bank, the Kindersley Co-op Grocery Store, and Puddles in My Garden were there to help with the donations.
Cpl. Amy Forbes, helped spearhead the drive in support of the Kindersley & District Food Bank – the second one she’s helped organize within the past six months in the community. “Many people donate food and money to the Food Bank around the holidays, but then the donations often decrease into the spring and summer months. The demand is always there. It feels great to give back to the community that does so much to support us as RCMP members.” Cpl. Forbes reports two RCMP trucks were filled with food and the organizing committee also received a large amount of cash donations.
In total, $1,895.00 was collected, along with the 1100 pounds of food donations for the Kindersley & District Food Bank. The Kindersley RCMP wanted to send a thank-you to the Kindersley Co-op and Puddles in My Garden Greenhouse for their collaboration and the community of Kindersley and surrounding areas for their contributions.
