Kayla Johnson and Tracy Joiner from Cash Express in studio, November 21, 2017
Kayla Johnson and Tracy Joiner, from Cash Express, were in studio Tuesday morning to talk to WPKY about the current Toy & Coat Drive and the upcoming Stuff the Cruiser event on December 2nd.
The 13th Annual Toy & Coat Drive is currently going on through December 15th and Cash Express has collection boxes at over 20 locations, including the primary and elementary schools, Food Giant, Little Caesar’s and WPKY. Kayla said that there are 24 collection boxes at the primary school and 18 boxes at the elementary school and the class that collects the most donations will win a pizza party. You can also drop off items at Cash Express, which is located at 311 US Highway 62 West. They are accepting new or gently used coats, new toys, and non-perishable food items. Kayla told listeners that all of the toys will be given to the Princeton Police Department for the David Scott Memorial Toy Drive, all new coats will be given to the HOPE/COPE Centers, and all the non-perishable food items will be given to area church food banks. She also mentioned that all of the used coats will be given to people in need in the community.
Kayla and Tracy then reminded listeners that the 3rd Annual Stuff the Cruiser event will be on Saturday, December 2nd from 10AM to 1PM in the parking lot of the Cash Express. The Princeton Police Department will provide the cruiser and all of the toys collected will be donated to the David Scott Memorial Toy Drive. They will be giving away free hotdogs and chips and Santa Claus will be there and available for photos with kids. Cash Express is inviting everyone in the community to come out and stuff the cruiser with toys and get free photos with Santa.
Kayla and Tracy then told listeners that Cash Express offers payday loans, check cashing, pre-paid debit cards, and now has a pawn shop. And currently, for Black Friday, they have 25 to 50 percent off select items this week only. They’ll also have a drawing at the door on Friday, November 24th, where you can draw a certain percentage off your purchase. Cash Express will be closed for Thanksgiving but will be open the rest of the week.
