Over the weekend, residents came together to drop off stuffed animals for a good cause. Samantha’s Hugs, a new local organization collecting stuffed animals for law enforcement, says they collected numerous stuffed animals during their event at the Towne Mall last Saturday.
Organizer Kevin Cox says the event resulted in two vans full of stuffed animals. Cox says the amount will be divided between KSP Post 4 and the Frankfort post. Cox says he hopes a conversation in Frankfort might lead to Samantha’s Hugs going across the state and collecting stuffed animals for local police posts.
