Cranbrook RCMP wants your help cramming a bus full of back-to-school items.
RCMP is teaming up with Emergency Services and Real Canadian Superstore for their Cram the School Bus event August 24th and 25th.
The bus will be parked in front of Real Canadian Superstore Friday and Saturday.
Constable Katie Forgeron says they want to fill the vehicle with needed items like binders, paper, markers and non-perishable food items.
“Its as simple as going into a store in town, buying some school products and just come on down,” Forgeron says. “Drop the items on the bus and go enjoy the rest of your day.”
Forgeron says they’re hoping to fill a bus with all kinds of items for local students.
“We’re looking for anything, binders, pencil crayons, paper, loose leaf graph paper, even back to school clothing,” Forgeron says. “I know I was always excited to get my back to school outfit, so some of these kids can’t afford it, so if people want to donate clothing items or backpacks, stuff like that.”
Breakfast items will also be accepted to support local breakfast programs.
Any items donated throughout the two days will be distributed by school trustees.
