Pack the Cruiser at Kroger

On Saturday, June 1, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., we encourage you to help “Pack the Cruiser” with food for the Summer Meal Food Drive. The Carmel Kroger Stores located at 1217 South Rangeline Road and 10675 North Michigan Road will be partnering with the Carmel Youth Assistance Program and Carmel Police Department to assist with the Summer Meal program.

To ensure all children receive proper nutrition during the summer and school vacation periods, the Summer Meal program provides grocery bags of food each week with ingredients to prepare meals and snacks during the summer months. Once again, the Carmel Youth Assistance Program is donating, collecting and distributing the funds for the program.  The Summer Meal program is dependent on the local community for support.

Carmel Police Officers and volunteers will be at the Kroger stores on Saturday with a specific list of items needed for the program.  However, monetary donations or Kroger Gift Cards will also be accepted. Please consider donating the items from the list and help us Pack the Cruiser!

Carmel Police Department is proud to be a partner of Pack the Cruiser 2019.

To make a financial donation towards the purchase of food:

Checks payable to Carmel Youth Assistance Program, clearly marked “Carmel Summer Lunch”
Checks can be mailed to 515 East Main St., Ste. 127, Carmel, IN 46032
Donations can also be made through the CYAP website at:
