Troopers Ask Central KY To ‘Cram The Cruiser’ With Food

State police asked Central Kentuckians to help cram a cruiser with food for the less fortunate.

The annual food drive kicked off Thursday.

Donated items could be dropped off at all sixteen state police posts, as well as the agency’s headquarters in Frankfort.

Troopers asked for non-perishable item such as 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.
 
State police said it had collected more than 124,000 pounds of food during the 2013 drive.

KSP spokesman Sgt. Michael Webb said, “We were so pleased with the results, hard work and effort from each of our posts and regions last year,” says Webb. “It is a wonderful opportunity to give back to those in local communities who are struggling financially during the holiday season.”

The ‘Cram The Cruiser’ campaign was scheduled to run through Dec.16, 2014.

All of the donated food would be given to local shelters, churches and other groups that helped those in need.
