ksp cram cruiser logoOWENSBORO, Ky. (11/27/17) — Kentucky State Police is now accepting donations for its eighth annual “Cram The Cruiser” holiday food drive. Designed to provide non-perishable food items for families in need throughout the Commonwealth, the campaign will continue through Dec.11.

Locally, KSP is teaming up with Kroger at 1670 Starlight Drive, Owensbor and will be collecting food from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. Dec. 3.

“Food is one of the most basic human needs,” said KSP spokesperson Lt. Michael Webb. “Unfortunately, hunger is present throughout all areas of the state. Through this program, we can all help make the season brighter for our neighbors in need.”
 
Collection sites for donations have been established at all of KSP’s 16 posts and six Commercial Vehicle Enforcement region offices throughout the state as well as the agency’s headquarters in Frankfort. Visit the KSP website at kentuckystatepolice.org for a listing of the locations.

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 are collected, said Webb.
 
“Last year, 339,656 pounds of food were donated from individuals, businesses, school groups, social clubs, scout troops and civic organizations throughout the state,” he notes. “Their spirit of giving had a significant impact and helped take hunger out of the holidays for many families.”
