Whether you donate toys, raise money, or hire a refugee, you can give back to our newest neighbors this holiday season. Here’s how:
donate winter wear & linens
The items of greatest need at this time of year are warm bed linens and blankets, coats and jackets, gloves, and scarves. If you’re in Louisville, please bring these items to our office Monday through Friday, 9:00 – 5:00 pm. If you’re in Lexington, we encourage you to give these items to our community center partners GlobalLex. Staff refer refugee clients there. Questions? Contact us!
