Shop and Share Weekend

Kentucky First Lady Jane Beshear is once again encouraging grocery shoppers to purchase a few extra items for the 15 domestic violence shelters across the commonwealth.  It’s all part of the fifth annual Shop and Share Day.    “And the idea is that each one of us goes this coming Saturday, February 2nd and as you are purchasing your items for your Super Bowl Party, that you think about helping others that are so desperate. There’ll be a volunteer in all of our stores and they’ll give you a list as to what are needed in your local shelter,” said Beshear.

Everything from canned goods, toiletries, to school supplies will be collected tomorrow from 9am to 5pm at area Kroger and Food City stores.  Last year the drive netted $782,000 in goods and money. Mrs. Beshear says the goal this year is to raise more than a million.
