One Port Credit resident alone bought two overflowing carts of food for the cause, as the annual Cram the Cruiser campaign took place at Loblaws on Lakeshore Rd. W. this weekend.
Staff were “incredibly happy that we can be a part of such a great community outreach initiative, and we can help out the needy during such a difficult time for some,” said Port Credit store manager Adam Grove.
Auxiliary volunteers from the OPP’s Port Credit detachment were donating their time to collect non-perishable food items and cash, benefiting the Mississauga Food Bank.
“We’re over our expectations,” said OPP Const. Bill Watts.
In total, more than 44 cruisers were ‘crammed’ over three weekends, with $14,000 being raised for the MFB.
