Kentucky's first lady is promoting a domestic violence shelter benefit set to take place in February.

The 5th annual "Shop & Share" day is scheduled for Feb. 2 at Kroger and Food City stores in Kentucky.

Beshear says the one-day event allows shoppers to purchase necessities for shelters and donate them in the store.

Last year, the combined goods and monetary donations for Shop & Share day were estimated at more than $782,000. Beshear says this year's goal is to collect more than $1 million in combined donations.

Volunteers will be on hand with lists of items that shelters need such as school supplies, toilet paper and soap. Monetary donations will also be accepted.

Contributions will be given to the 15 Kentucky Domestic Violence Association shelters across the state.
