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