The annual Stuff the Cruiser event will be taking place on Friday, Dec. 9, from 3 p.m to 7 p.m. directly in front of the Chamber offices on Barriere Town Road.

Thanks to the Barriere RCMP Detachment, the Chamber, Interior Savings, and the Barriere Food Bank this event will be rolling out in just over a week.

The Barriere RCMP again will be on site with one of their cruiser’s that will be well lit up for the evening. Folks can also have a picture taken while they are stuffing the cruiser with their donation.

The Stuff The Cruiser event in 2021 brought in over $2000 in cash, 676 pounds of food, and numerous boxes of children’s toys.

“This year we hope to top that,” said Chamber office manager Lianne Hamblin, “The ladies from Interior Savings Credit Union will be here again this year with their hot chocolate, and we’ll have Christmas carols playing with a fire to gather around – and of course our popular reindeer will be out front.”

Hamblin advises members the Barriere Food Bank will also be in attendance to help folks to unload their donations.

All food and cash donations will go directly to the Barriere Food Bank, and the toys will be distributed throughout the North Thompson Valley where needed, including during the Breakfast with Santa held at the Barriere Lions Hall on Dec. 10, 9a.m. - 12 p.m. If you have any questions contact the Chamber at: 250-672-9221.
