OPP Stuff a Cruiser
Luke Elwgren (foreground) started the event 14 years ago. Now OPP across the province hold their own event in their communities.

OPP officers were busy Saturday, but not with criminals. The 9th annual stuff-a-cruiser event was staged at Rome’s Independent Grocer Saturday to meet the needs of the Sault Ste. Marie Soup Kitchen over the Christmas season.

OPP officer Luke Elwgren was instrumental in the launch of event with the OPP Auxiliary Unit. “We see those faces at the soup kitchen and it’s nice to be able to do something at this time of year” The event is now province wide through various OPP auxiliary units as the result of the local initiative.

“We will fill this cruiser and van by 3pm” Elwgren said. OPP would also like to thank Rome’s for their support for the event over the years.
