“This was our first year collecting in Iroquois,” said Dundas Food Bank secretary, Celeste Guse, “and the people here have been incredibly generous. We’ve received all kinds of food, and many people have given cash donations as well.”
“We’ve had an excellent turn-out here in Morrisburg,” said OPP Constable Theresa Lauzon. “People have really been getting into the spirit of giving, and it’s been great for the Food Bank. We’ve already filled three cruisers.”
Stuff-a-Cruiser was the initiated by Auxiliary Staff Sergeant, Alan Jodoin. The event represents a joint effort by the OPP and the OPP Auxiliary to help Food Banks ensure that shelves are well stocked during the Christmas season. This year the campaign brought in 1,000 items of food. “We also received $1,500 in donations from the Morrisburg/Iroquois locations,” said Donna Quesnel, on the board of the Dundas Food Bank.
