A lot of different groups are getting into high gear again.

For some, volunteers will have to get a criminal records check.

High River RCMP Constable Jill Kingdon-Mills says they've decided to give back to the community.

"The Town of High River and the detachment have decided that all the proceeds from the criminal records checks for the month of December will be donated to the Food Bank, so the Salvation Army Food Bank," she says.

Most community, sports and volunteer groups ask for criminal records checks.

The cost to have them done is $25.00.
