RICHMOND, Ky. (FOX 56/WKYT) – Kentucky State Police are looking forward to several events to help people in their communities.

Troopers were set up at the Walmart in Richmond today in an effort to raise money for their Shop with a Trooper event. They’ll also have the Cram the Cruiser, which provides food for people.

They raffled off a big screen TV, along with taking donations for the various needs in central and southern Kentucky.

“Troopers in their communities take roughly 100 to 130 kids in their community that might not get a Christmas. You know there’s a need every year. It doesn’t matter if there is a pandemic or a disaster,” Kentucky State Police Trooper Scottie Pennington said.

Donations can also be dropped off at any Kentucky State Police post to help with the Shop with a Trooper events. Wednesday’s raffle in Richmond was to assist with posts in Richmond and London.
