Local Kroger to Participate in Jane Beshear's Shop & Share Drive

Shop Share KY domestic violHOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (1/29/14) — Shop & Share is a joint resourcefulness of Kentucky First Lady Jane Beshear's Office, the Kentucky Domestic Violence Association, the Kentucky Commission on Women, Kroger, Food City, the General Federation of Women’s Clubs, the Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana, the Girl Scouts of Wilderness Road Council and the Kentucky Drug Court.

Shop & Share collects much needed goods and funds for the 15 domestic violence shelters across the Commonwealth.

The 2014 Shop & Share will take place at all Kroger, Food City and Super Dollar Discount Foods Saturday, Feb. 1.

“I think this is a great thing,” said Kevin Berry, store manager of Kroger. “We are a very community-oriented store and this event fits right up there with what we are about. I think it is important as a community and state to be more involved.”

Beshear began the annual drive in 2008 to help provide domestic violence shelters across the state with needed goods, such as canned foods, toilet paper and soaps.

“A lot of people come in and ask for help, but we can give out so much,” said Berry. “A lot of people are hurting and we need to be able to do more, we are just limited to what we can give out.”

In the first three years, Shop & Share has raised an approximate total of $759,000.

In 2012, the drive was extended to include Food City in eastern Kentucky and the drive was able to collect more than all previous years combined, raising $782,000 in goods and donations.

For more information or interested to make a monetary donation, visit kdva.org or mail a check payable to: Kentucky Domestic Violence Association, 111 Darby Shire Circle Frankfort, KY 40601.
