During the month of January, the High School is running a drive gathering donations of household and certain personal items for Kentucky Refugee Ministries (KRM). KRM is a refugee resettlement agency that works with the UN High Commissioner on Refugees and the U.S. State Department, and it has settled more than 16,000 refugees. With so many conflicts worldwide, the need to support KRM and its efforts has never been greater. Francis Parker already partners with KRM for community service and looks forward to expanding its commitment to this worthwhile cause through this supply drive.

The High School grades will be competing for a pizza lunch for the most donations, and any donations from families at the Goshen Campus are also most welcome. Please join us in helping KRM make Louisville home for refugees. A list of needed items is included below. Household items may be new or gently used. Boxes will be located at each campus near the front office areas.

  • Sheet sets (twin, full, queen)
  • Bath and kitchen towel sets
  • Blankets and comforters (for beds)
  • Bathroom trash cans
  • Toilet paper
  • Paper towels
  • Silverware
  • Feminine hygiene pads
