First Lady Jane Beshear helped kick off an initiative Wednesday that seeks to turn used cell phones into hope for victims of domestic violence.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Kentucky First Lady Jane Beshear is once again encouraging grocery shoppers to purchase a few extra items for the 15 domestic violence shelters across the Commonwealth as part of the fifth annual Shop &  Share Day.

"The idea is that each one of us goes this coming Saturday, February 2nd and as you are purchasing your items for your Super Bowl Party, that you think about helping others that are so desperate.  There’ll be a volunteer in all of our stores and they’ll give you a list of items needed in your local shelter.”
