KSP Posts to Help Storm Victims throughout Kentucky

Date of News Release: 03/05/2012

(Frankfort, KY) - In the wake of the severe weather and tornado outbreaks across Kentucky, KSP posts and headquarters will serve as designated drop off sites for items needed in devastated communities. The need has arisen for a reputable location that citizens feel comfortable leaving donations, knowing they will reach the people in most need. This will also limit the number of people traveling into these stricken areas (to deliver items) allowing first responders more access to people in need.

Items will be evenly distributed to all communities impacted. Collection of items will be starting tomorrow and will continue through Sunday, March 10. Monetary donations are not encouraged through us. Anyone who wishes to contribute monetarily should contact an organization such as the Red Cross.

We've compiled a list of resources for the recovery effort and they are listed below:

List of items needed:

  1. Leather gloves
  2. Shovels
