Goodwill Donations

As the weather continues to become colder, Kentucky Refugee Ministries is in desparate need of winter clothing for our clients. Most of our clients come to Kentucky with little more than the clothes on their back, and because they come from warm weather climates, almost no one is prepared for the cold winter weather.

Unfortunately, we don't have adequate space in our office to take clothes as donations. Because of this, KRM and Goodwill have formed a partnership to provide refugee families with the opportunity to shop at Goodwill at no cost to them, but we need your help. When donations of clothes and shoes are brought to Goodwill in Kentucky Refugee Ministries name, we get credit to take new families shopping.

At the moment, we are negative in credit. If you have items you're considering donating to Goodwill, please remember us and ask to donate them for Kentucky Refugee Ministries Agency Assistance Program. All Goodwills in Lexington, KY participate in this program. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to call our office at (859)226-5661.
