23rd annual charity checkstop in Innisfail Dec. 8

It’s that time of year again.

The Christmas season is approaching and Innisfail RCMP are conducting this year’s Charity Checkstop on Dec. 8.

RCMP members and volunteers, as well as lots of flashing red and blue lights, will be set up on 50th Street between 48th and 49th avenues between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Donations will be accepted from drivers travelling in either direction. Motorists not wishing to donate may proceed without difficulty.

Safety Bear will be handing out candy canes.

Charity Checkstop will once again be accepting new clothing, food, new toys and cash. The charitable organizations this year will be the food bank, Christmas Bureau and the Women’s Outreach Society.
