Drug Court Soliciting Donations for Troops in Afghanistan

In celebration of National Drug Court Month, the Jefferson County Drug Court program is collecting supplies for active-duty soldiers in Afghanistan throughout May.

The program is asking the public to give items the troops need and is requesting that area agencies and businesses serve as donation sites. The items will be combined and presented to the military in June to be delivered overseas.

“Drug Court provides participants an opportunity to experience freedom from addiction,” Kentucky Drug Court manager Elizabeth Nichols said. “During National Drug Court Month in May, Drug Court programs and their participants want to serve the men and women who help protect freedom for all Americans. We need the community’s support to be successful. Please donate items to help soldiers wherever you see a ‘Drug Court Works to Support Our Troops’ box with the American flag and yellow ribbon and, if you head a business or an agency, offer to serve as a collection site.”

The Jefferson County Drug Court program is asking for the following donations:

Aloe Vera gel
Hand warmers
Soft toilet paper
Toothbrushes
Toothpaste
Travel games
Velcro of all sizes (green and/or black only)
Instant coffee, caffeinated
Tea bags
Trail mix

Currently, donation sites include the Jefferson County Drug Court Office (717 W. Market St.), the Louisville Bar Association (600 W. Main St., Ste. 110) and the Attorney Room (Judicial Center). You may drop off your donations at any of the forementioned locations through the end of May.

To serve as a donation site contact Latevia Priddy or Charlie Doram at (502) 595-3376.
