KSP collects 123 tons of food in Cram the Cruiser campaign

The Kentucky State Police says it collected 123 tons of food for Kentucky families in its sixth annual Cram the Cruiser food drive.

“Once again this project illustrates the tremendous partnerships and support that our agency enjoys across the Commonwealth,” KSP Commissioner Rodney Brewer said in an announcement Tuesday. “Because of the generosity of numerous businesses and citizens, we have set another record that will help feed those in need this holiday season.”

The campaign is also a friendly competition among KSP posts and CVE regions to see which location can collect the most food. KSP says the Henderson Post is the 2015 champion, with a total of 44,670 pounds of food collected.

Henderson Post Capt. Todd Kidd credits members of the community and businesses for their support of the project.

“We can’t thank our local community enough for their contributions and continued support” says Kidd. “I would also like to recognize Trooper First Class Corey King. Without his hard work and dedication, this achievement would not have been possible.”
