RCMP, Police, Paramedics Team Up For Food Drive

What started out as a challenge has turned into collaboration. The Great Haul-a-Day food drive between paramedics, Bridgewater Police and Lunenburg County RCMP will be held Saturday at the Bridgewater Superstore. The three groups used to compete against each other, but this year they're teaming up to fill a 14-foot trailer with non-perishable and cash donations. Staff Sgt. Bruce Hill with Lunenburg County RCMP says there's a demand right now for food banks.

This is the fifth year for the event, which has helped raise over $15,000 for local food banks. Proceeds from this years event goes towards the Bridgewater Inter-church food bank. It goes from 1pm-5pm Saturday.
