Join us as our communities pull together to Power up the Pantry!

KY Power

Sponsored - Businesses, organizations, schools and individuals are encouraged to help stock up food pantries before winter arrives during our day long food drive across eastern Kentucky.

Drop off locations:

  • ARH Medical Mall, off of Black Gold Blvd., Hazard
  • Central Park, at end of Chuck Woolery Blvd., Ashland

How to participate:

  • Start now to collect non-perishable food, toiletries and monetary contributions for drop off. Please make sure items are not expired.
  • Organize a collection effort at your work, school or church and donate as a group or just swing by with your individual donations.
