The local OPP’s “Stuff a Cruiser” campaign is set to return for a second holiday season on December 10th, 2011 to help fill the pantries of local organizations which help those in need.

From 10 a.m.-4 p.m. that day, OPP cruisers being located in front of Wal-Mart, Safeway, and The Place here in Fort Frances, as well as Cloverleaf Grocery in Emo, collecting donations of non-perishable food items from the public.

These donations will go towards supporting the programs run by the local Salvation Army, UNFC, Sunset Country Métis, and the Fort Frances Volunteer Bureau for the annual community Christmas dinner.

The “wish list” includes items such as canned soup (tomato, cream of mushroom, chicken noodle, vegetable), canned vegetables (corn, beans, carrots, peas, tomatoes), canned fruit, baked beans, canned meat (tuna, salmon), turkey, ham, and Kraft Dinner.
Pasta (macaroni, spaghetti), instant potatoes, cereal, peanut butter, jam, tea, coffee, packets of sugar, canned pasta, cranberry sauce, Stove Top stuffing, pancake mix, syrup, powdered milk, and packets of salt and pepper also are sought.
