The City of Park Hills, along with Erlanger, Lakeside Park, Crescent Springs and Villa Hills, has become a part of the Adopt-A-Unit Program. The five cities will be collecting items to send to our troops overseas. The group will also host fundraisers that will be posted on this site as they are upcoming. One very popular event will be the annual Kenton County Veterans Memorial “Armed Forces Day 5K Run/Walk” scheduled for Saturday, May 17th. For more information, or to register, please click here. The other event is a bowling fundraiser also in May. Please click here for more information.
Items for the troops can be dropped off at the city building, 1106 Amsterdam Road, Monday – Thursday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. and on Fridays between 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.

-Eye drops (saline)
-Drink singles (the ones that flavor 16 oz water bottles)
-Foot powder and foot lotions
-Toothpaste (small tubes)
