Kentucky State Police posts will serve as drop off for donations

Kentucky State Police posts and headquarters will serve as designated drop off sites for needed items in communities that were affected by the recent severe weather.

“The need has arisen for a reputable location that citizens feel comfortable leaving donations, knowing they will reach the people in most need,” according to a KSP news release.

The drop off locations will also limit the number of people traveling into the devastated areas, which allows first responders more access to people in need, the release said.

Collection of items begins Tuesday and will continue through Sunday, and items will be evenly distributed to all communities impacted.

Monetary donations are not encouraged through KSP, and anyone wishing to contribute monetarily should contact a different organization such as the Red Cross.
