Innisfail RCMP charity checkstop on Saturday

Every year donations increase

An RCMP checkstop in Innisfail on Saturday will bring cheer to local families facing a hard time this Christmas.

The 21st annual Innisfail Charity Checkstop will run in its usual location, at 50th Street between 48th and 49th Avenues, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Innisfail RCMP members and volunteers will be there accepting donations from people driving eastbound and westbound. Safety Bear and Santa Claus will hand out candy canes. Anyone not wishing to donate will be able to proceed through without any difficulty.

The checkstop will once again be accepting food, new clothing and new toys, and cash. The charitable organizations that will benefit this year include the food bank, Christmas Bureau, Women’s Outreach Society and Big Brothers and Sisters.

Due to the generosity of the community, the charity checkstop has proven to be increasingly more successful every year.
