Kentucky First Lady Jane Beshear is encouraging Kentuckians to volunteer next month.
Mrs. Beshear is calling on all citizens to volunteer their time and participate in the 5th annual Shop & Share Day, a one-day goods drive to benefit domestic violence shelters across the Commonwealth.
The drive take place at Kentucky Kroger and Food City stores on the Saturday of Super Bowl weekend, February 2nd from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Last year, the combined goods and monetary donations for Shop & Share day were estimated at more than $782,000.
Mrs. Beshear stated thanks to the generosity and support of Kentuckians, Shop & Share has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for domestic violence victims and their families and every year, this year the goal is to collect more than $1 million in donations.
All collected contributions will be given to the 15 Kentucky Domestic Violence Association shelters throughout the state.
