Police and paramedics join forces for food bank

by Lisa Brown

 BRIDGEWATER - It will be police versus paramedics versus police December 3 in the third annual food bank challenge.

 Lunenburg District RCMP have joined the friendly competition this year as first responders square off in the Atlantic Superstore parking lot to see who can stuff their vehicles with the most non-perishables for the Bridgewater Interchurch Food Bank.

 In the past two years, officers with the Bridgewater Police Service and Emergency Health Services (EHS) South Shore paramedics have declared it a draw.

 "I actually am quite happy that we're involved," says RCMP Staff Sgt. Bruce Hill. "Whoever collects the most food and money only gets bragging rights; however, the food bank is the real winner.

 "And we like the fact that it's staying local," he adds.

 This year's challenge will run from 1 to 5 p.m. with the winners being decided and announced at the end.

 Community members are encouraged to show their support by donating non-perishables and money at the food drive.

 Non-perishable food items can also be dropped off at the Bridgewater Police Service at 45 Exhibition Drive, the EHS Bridgewater base at 109 North Street or the Cookville RCMP station at 14 Cooks Lane prior to the December 3 event.

 Staff Sgt. Hill said Lunenburg and Chester detachments are also accepting food donations.
