National Corvette Museum Partners with Local Friends and Family Group to Collect Donations

The Corvette community is about more than just cars... it's also about philanthropy and supporting those in need. After the wave of tornados hit and devastated many communities in Kentucky, our Corvette family has come forward, asking how to help.

After looking for opportunities to chip in with other area relief efforts the Museum is partnering with a group of friends and family, organized by Jason & Donna Bennett, and Lacy & Kevin Harrod of Bowling Green, who have direct connections to the communities in need, to collect and deliver items.

The items will be transported to communities surrounding West Liberty including Crockitt, Lawrence County, Marysville, Henryville and East Bernstadt this Saturday, March 10 and again next Saturday, March 17.

Collection Location and Times:
The Museum has a collection box in the lobby and items can be dropped off seven days a week, 8am-5pm.

The group will also be setup tonight (Thursday, March 8) at Greenwood High School on Scottsville Road beginning at 5pm, and Friday, March 9 at Warren East High School beginning at 5pm.

Suggested Items

  • baby items (diapers, formula, baby food, wipes)

  • canned goods, packaged food

  • batteries, flashlights,

  • toiletries

  • lates gloves, trashbags

The Museum is located at 350 Corvette Drive, just off I-65 exit 28.
