Stuff the Truck
Each holiday season, Paducah Power System partners with Lourdes, Baptist Health Paducah and Wagner Moving and Storage to “Stuff the Truck” for area food pantries. The event is part of the Christmas in the Park canned food drive. For two days, the businesses work to fill a semi trailer full of nonperishable food donated by hospital employees and the public. The trailer spends one day on the parking lot of Baptist Health and another day on the parking lot of Lourdes. Wagner Moving and Storage donates the truck, trailer and drivers. Started in 2010, the event generates food each year for the pantries operated by Paducah Cooperative Ministry, Family Service Society, the Salvation Army and St. Vincent DePaul Society. The 2016 event collected 6,945 pounds of canned goods.
