   FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Shoppers at groceries across Kentucky donated a record amount of goods and money during a one-day drive to benefit Kentucky Domestic Violence Association shelters in the state.
 
   First lady Jane Beshear says the sixth annual Shop & Share Day on Saturday raised more than $839,155.
 
   Volunteers at the stores collected goods from shoppers, with all goods and money collected going to the shelters.
 
   The first lady's office was one of the partners for the event. The office said the Kentucky Domestic Violence Association handled more than 23,000 crisis calls last year and served more than 43,000 men, women and children through its member programs.
