The Prince Albert Police Service is partnering with the Prince Albert detachment of the Saskatchewan RCMP on a local food drive to help hungry families this holiday season.
Between December 9 and December 19, residents and business owners will be able to drop off donations of cash or non-perishable food items for the Prince Albert Food Bank at both the new P.A.P.S. downtown substation, located at 40-10th St. E, and the Prince Albert RCMP detachment office at 150-15th St. N.W.
The food will be collected and taken to the food bank on December 20 to be distributed to less fortunate families within our community.
The Prince Albert Police Service is excited to partner with the RCMP on this new initiative and looks forward to collecting as many donations as possible to help local families. The Prince Albert Food Bank distributes up to 1,000 food hampers to local families each month.
Some of the most needed food items include staples such as pasta, rice and beans, canned meats and fish, canned fruits or vegetables, and cereals or oatmeal.
Donations of food or cash can be made at the downtown police substation between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. each weekday from December 9th to the 19th. Food items can also be dropped at the Prince Albert RCMP detachment during regular business hours.
