This holiday season, there are countless opportunities to give back. Here are a few ways you can make an impact for refugees.
Extend a Warm Welcome: Donate a Coat
If you’re in Louisville, please consider donating a warm coat, hats, gloves, or scarves. Contact Donations Coordinator Melissa Siegel at email@example.com or (502) 479-9180 x 523 to schedule a drop-off time. If you’re in Lexington, we encourage you to give these items to our community center partners GlobalLex. Staff members refer newcomers in Lexington there for coats.
donate toys for a holiday party
Help our youngest Kentuckians feel the joy of the holidays by donating toys. See our KRM Louisville office’s Toy Wish List for ideas. Toys will be collected until December 18th. Contact Donations Coordinator Melissa Siegel at firstname.lastname@example.org or (502) 479-9180 x 523 to schedule a drop-off.

If you are in Louisville, shop at Just Creations for a community shopping night on Thursday, November 29th, or at the Peace and Goodwill Holiday Bazaar at Douglass Boulevard Christian Church on Saturday, December 1. At the bazaar, you’ll have the opportunity to purchase items from women in the STITCH program.
If you are in Lexington, take a shopping break for lunch at Blaze Pizza at The Summit on November 29th. Show the KRM flyer (available on social media), and Blaze will donate 20% to KRM.
