Auxiliary Constables bring holiday cheer

The Kelowna RCMP’s Auxiliary Constables Program provided some holiday cheer by presenting two families each with a $500 cheque and a few small gifts.

Sammy the Safety Bear was also on hand as two single mothers with multiple children were selected for the donation, due to financial difficulties.

The families were brought into the Kelowna detachment on Friday afternoon and surprised with the monetary gift and some small stuffed animals for the kids.

"Today we were able to give a small gift to some deserving families," says Auxiliary Constable John Bauer.

"It is just one more example of how committed we are to our community and it sure felt good to see the joy it brought."

Each year the RCMP Auxiliary Constable Program in Kelowna invests more than 12,000 volunteer hours back into the community with each member committing a minimum of 160 hours.
