The Toronto Police Service had a friendly challenge against the Hamilton Police Service, and in partnership with Michael “Pinball” Clemons Foundation to see who can collect the most non-perishable food for the Daily Bread Food Bank & Hamilton Food Share.

The food bank challenge was called “Cram-A-Cruiser” and the food was going to be collected by the different schools throughout Toronto/Hamilton. Well, St Georges Junior Public School took up the challenge, more specifically the grade 2’s. All the staff, students and their families at St George’s participated by bring in food, to support the grade 2’s who spearheaded the food drive. As you can see in the photo Officer Rich’s cruiser 2202 was filled to the roof , including the trunk.

Once the cruiser was unloaded and the food was weighed, a total of 883lbs of food was collected. At the end of the day it does not matter who won, but that everyone wins when we as a community do good deeds, in order to help others. GREAT JOB Staff, Students & your Families!!!

Officer Rich attended the annual "Tulip Festival" which is hosted by the B.I.A which is held in the Royal York Rd & Evens Ave. area.

Officer Rich was surrounded by some over grown bunnies & carrots, which they were part of the festivities!! I'd love to see the garden that those carrots came from.

This week is "Bicycle to work/school" week and as a result Officer Rich held a bicycle assembly at Twentieth Street School.

A special guest was invited Tammy Stanley, who 20 years ago was involved in a serious accident, as a result of not wearing a helmet. Officer rich was first on scene and was subsequently credited & recognized with saving her life, along with other emergency personnel. Last year both Officer Rich & Tammy paths inadvertently crossed and they were reunitedand Tammy wanted to share her story with others.

Since last year, both Officer Rich & Tammy speak to the students at Officer Rich's 51 schools on Bicycle safety/rules, as seen in this photo and how IMPORTANT it is to wear a helmet for safety! Special thanks to the principal at Twentieth Street School Rob Hochberg as seen in the photo, as well as the staff & ALL my students for inviting us to speak!
