Columbia Valley RCMP were involved in a pair of charity events in Invermere over the weekend
On Saturday the RCMP held the Cram the Cruiser Toy Drive.
They collected toy donations to give to local families in need of support.
Sergeant Darren Kakuno says the drive was a tremendous success.
“I’m still waiting on the final count, ” Kakuno says. “But the last I heard, it was somewhere near 500 toys. We had to empty the police truck 6 times on Saturday. I am continually amazed by the generosity of our valley, and I wanted to thank everyone who came out to support the Cranbrook Cruiser event.”
Kakuno was also present at the annual Copper Point Feed the Town event to help serve food and raise funds for the local food bank.
