KSP Holiday Food Drive Begins
Madisonville, Ky. (Nov. 21, 2017) – The Kentucky State Police will kick-off their eighth annual “Cram The Cruiser” holiday food drive on Nov. 22. This campaign is designed to provide non-perishable food items for families in need throughout the Commonwealth, and will continue through Dec. 11.
Suggested donations include non-expired canned fruit and vegetables, canned meat, macaroni and cheese, cereal, peanut butter, jelly, canned soups, chili or spaghetti sauce, brownie and cake mixes, coffee, water, powdered milk, and juices.
The food will be distributed to local shelters, churches or other organizations in the areas where they were donated.
Last year, 339,656 pounds of food were donated from individuals, businesses, school groups, social clubs, scout troops and civic organizations throughout the state. Post 2 currently has a cruiser parked at Jordan's Barber Shop in Greenville, KY and will have more locations set up. Donations can be put in the designated cruisers, dropped off at any State Police post or given to one of your local Troopers.
