Refugees are resettled in Kentucky throughout the year, including over the holiday season. As the weather cools, we are grateful to the growing number of supporters who reach out to KRM and ask ‘How can I help?’ To best answer your question, we’ve put together a brief list of ways you can get involved — no matter where you are or how much time you have!
donate household furniture & GOODS
Refugees arrive with little to no possessions. Help KRM collect household furniture and goods for a family’s new home. Learn more.
donate winter coats
Give a warm welcome to refugees with a winter coat. Drop off coats or winter accessories (hats, gloves, scarves, etc.) at KRM’s Louisville or Lexington offices.
Give a gift card
Help stock a family’s kitchen by donating gift cards for grocery stores like Kroger, Wal-Mart, or ValuMarket. You can drop these off or mail them to KRM’s Louisville or Lexington offices.
New volunteer orientations are held monthly. Read the volunteer opportunities to see how you can get involved. Sign up for an upcoming orientation. Learn more.
Create welcome cards & Letters
Gather the kids and adults together to draw, color, and decorate cards or letters welcoming new children and families to the Kentucky. Drop the cards at KRM or mail them to us, and we’ll share them new families.
Attend one of our Lunch and Learn events at KRM’s Louisville office to hear about our work and our clients. RSVP for the November 15 or December 13 event today.
Monetary donations ensure KRM can deliver comprehensive resettlement services, including providing emergency assistance for families in crisis. Donate now. From November 29 through December 31, KRM Lexington supporters can also give through the Bluegrass Community Foundation Good Giving Challenge.
prepare to co-sponsor a family
Organize your faith community or civic group to fundraise for a family, gather household goods, and commit to a 3-month partnership with KRM, all to welcome one new family to Kentucky. Learn more.
