Bowling Park Food Pantry receives donation from Red Lick

By Chris Lagermann

Bill Lagermann recently completed a Thrivent Action Team event collecting food for the Bowling Park Food Pantry in Edmonton. He has belonged to a group that used to be called Aid Association for Lutherans, that is now called Thrivent Financial.

They are a "different kind of financial services organization". They help people make smart choices about their money and have been doing that for over 100 years.

But they also help Christians "Live Generously" by helping others. Members can lead a Thrivent Action Team and give back to others.

Annual holiday food drive underway

By Captain Paul Blanton

Frankfort, KY - This week, Gov. Andy Beshear and the Kentucky State Police (KSP) encouraged Kentuckians to consider participating in 'Cram the Cruiser' by donating non-perishable food items to help feed Kentucky families in need this holiday season. The collection began on Tuesday, November 23, and concludes on Monday, December 6, 2021.

"The holidays can be tough for families, but one area that should not be stressful is having the ability to sit down together and share a meal," said Gov. Beshear. "My administration is committed to fighting hunger and helping to ensure that no family in Kentucky goes to bed hungry. I appreciate KSP for caring for all Kentuckians not just by protecting their lives but serving them so their most basic need is met."

'Cram the Cruiser' is a statewide effort hosted by all 16 KSP posts, and the collected food is distributed to local food banks, shelters, churches and other organizations. This year, some local police departments are also holding "Cram the Cruiser" events.

Throughout the food drive, troopers will be staged at grocery and retail stores accepting items including canned fruit and vegetables, canned meat, macaroni and cheese, cereal, peanut butter, jelly, canned soups, chili or spaghetti sauce, brownie and cake mixes, coffee, water, powdered milk, and juices. Food items may also be dropped off at local post locations.

A simultaneous statewide signature event is planned on Saturday, December 4, from 10am to 2pm in each post area as the final push for the campaign.
