While the Red Cross and other relief agencies continue to fundraise on behalf of storm victims, Kentucky State Police are collecting supplies to aid in the cleanup and recovery across the Commonwealth. KSP spokesperson Lieutenant David Jude says all 16 KSP posts have been designated as drop off areas where people can donate badly needed supplies.
“What we’ve thought is if we could get each post to be a collection spot for donations for goods that are needed in those communities, then we can work as an agency to get those goods efficiently down to those areas. It’s the right thing to do,” he said.
Jude says they are collecting everything from first aid kits to cleaning supplies; even non-perishable food. Donations will be accepted through Sunday, March 10.
