KAMLOOPS — It's the time of year to give back to the community, and there are opportunities all weekend for Kamloops residents to do so.

On Saturday (Dec. 8), both RCMP and BC Transit will be hosting drives for donations.

The Kamloops detachment is hosting its annual "Stuff the Cruiser" event in support of Christmas Amalgamated. The public is asked to bring donations of food, toys and cash to Toys R Us and Walmart from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. tomorrow.

Stuff the Bus will be held at the Columbia Square Save-On-Foods beginning tomorrow. The City of Kamloops and BC Transit are asking residents to bring a non-perishable food or monetary donation to benefit the Kamloops Food Bank.

The event will be held both Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Tomorrow afternoon, Pogue Mahone is hosting a Christmas Amalgamated fundraiser. A meat draw and live entertainment will be happening, and proceeds will go toward Christmas Amalgamated.

The Blue Grotto is hosting its second annual Rock for Christmas Amalgamated fundraiser on Sunday evening. Four bands will be playing, and 50/50 and raffle tickets will be sold in support of the charity.

Performances begin at 6:00 p.m. Dec. 9.
