FRANKFORT, Ky. (Jan. 27, 2015) — The seventh annual Shop & Share will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on March 28 at Kroger, Food City and Super Dollar Discount Food stores. The event is a drive to benefit Kentucky Coalition Against Domestic Violence (KCADV) shelters.

Shop & Share, usually held the Saturday before the Super Bowl, was pushed back to March in case of poor winter weather conditions

During the event volunteers at each Kroger, Food City and Super Dollar Discount Food store will provide a list of items needed at KCADV shelters—such as non-perishable foods, school supplies, hygiene products and cleaning supplies. Monetary donations will also be accepted.

All contributions will be donated to the 15 KCADV shelters across the state.
