Williamsburg – The Williamsburg Police Department (WPD) Department of Human Services is collecting non-perishable food items for the “Stuff the Cruiser” food campaign.
This is the second year that the Stuff the Cruiser food campaign has been launched. This year, the food drive started on November 19 at Aldi on Richmond Road and continued on November 21 at Food Lion on Richmond Road. During the event, the Police Department also assisted the Human Heritage Society in collecting dog and cat food and toys for the shelter animals.
