Chestermere Peace Officers are revving up for their first annual Pack the Patrol Car fundraiser on August 18 for the Chestermere Food Bank.
“We are looking to fill up our vehicles, trailers, and trucks to help support the Chestermere Food Bank and ultimately free the firefighters from the rooftop,” says Shawn Press, Community Peace Officer.
Attendees are asked to bring non-perishable food items to pack the Chestermere Peace Officers’ patrol car to free Chestermere’s firefighters from the rooftop of Safeway.
Residents of all ages can also look forward to police car and fire truck displays, hot dogs (by donation), free popcorn and other activities.
Pre-prepared bags of non-perishable food items can also be purchased at Safeway.
“Thank you to Safeway for providing the location of the event, the hotdogs and making this event possible,” says Press.
The event takes place August 18 from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the parking lot of Chestermere Safeway (135 Chestermere Station Way).
