Cram-A-Cruiser con­tin­ues to put coats on peo­ple and food on tables for those in need.

The 2018 Cram-A-Cruiser cam­paign has helped put food on tables and coats on backs for another year.

Cram-A-Cruiser col­lected a truck load of food and coats dur­ing its 2018 cam­paign.

The food was de­liv­ered to the Amherst Food Bank and the coats to the Em­pow­er­ing Beyond Bar­ri­ers Coats for Cum­ber­land cam­paign.

Const. Tom Wood of the Amherst Po­lice Depart­ment thanked ev­ery­body who made do­na­tions.

“Thank you again for sup­port­ing our lo­cal food bank and the Em­pow­er­ing Beyond Bar­ri­ers Coats for Cum­ber­land cam­paign,” said Wood.
