Windsor police hosted a 'Stuff-A-Cruiser' event Saturday in support of CBC Windsor's Sounds of the Season initiative. 

More than 2,900 pounds of food was collected and stuffed into a Windsor Police Service cruiser, with another $896 donated in Canadian money. 

Windsor police officers, Little Miss Galaxy Canada and Little Miss Pre-Teen Galaxy Canada helped at the event, held at the Dougall Avenue Superstore.

Some gift cards were also collected to be donated to Kids First Food Bank in Windsor. 

The event was one of the first for the 2019 Sounds of the Season campaign
