Darren Doyle, story:
The 13th Annual Cram The Cruiser, which is part of the regional Stuff The Bus initiative, is coming back to Edmonson County and is scheduled for Friday, July 12, 2019.
This year's event will last a little longer than usual with the addition of donation tabs that will be available for purchase at the checkout lines at local retailers beginning sometime next week and will continue through the end of July. For only $1, you can purchase your Cram the Cruiser donation tabs that will be displayed at each store with your name included. 100% of all money raised will stay with Edmonson County Schools.
Volunteers from Edmonson County Schools will be set up at the Family Dollar on Main Street on July 12th from 10am - 3pm, other volunteers will set up at Dollar General in Chalybeate from 10am-3pm, and will be accepting monetary donations, school supplies, clothing, and non-perishable food items for Edmonson County students. At 3pm, the crew will move over to Ace Hardware, which is part of the Houchens Industries 2019 Stuff the Bus drive, and will stay there until 5pm. All donations will go to Edmonson County schools.
Kentucky State Police, the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office, and Brownsville Police will have cruisers set up and Pelican's Snoballs will be offering their ice cold treats while they will be giving 20% of their sales that day to EC schools. The Edmonson Voice is proud to be the media sponsor once again for the event, which has consistently grown over the years.
Remember, all donations, whether monetary, school supplies, donation tab sales at local stores, food, or clothing will stay in Edmonson County.
