Love from Louisville is a new effort to help supply Jesuit Refugee Services in Athens, Greece, with food, clothing and other items to help it feed, clothe and comfort refugees who arrive by boat on Greece’s shores and islands. UPS has agreed to transport emergency items by air, at the request of Mayor Greg Fischer.

Supplies Over Seas is donating medical supplies, Love the Hungry is sending rice packets that will feed 30,000-50,000 people, and Sysco Louisville will provide nearly a half-ton of dry macaroni. But Love from Louisville is trying to gather as many goods as possible by the cut-off date, March 22.

Requested items include:

  • Clothing for men, women, teens and children of all ages
  • Jackets and light coats
  • Shoes, especially men’s
  • Athletic shoes and socks for all ages
  • Regular shoes for walking
  • Baseball caps, woolen hats
  • Hoodies, T-shirts – any brand, any logo
  • Disposable Diapers
  • Personal Hygiene Items
    • Soap
    • Shampoo
    • Shaving Cream
    • Razors
    • Toothpaste
    • Toothbrushes
  • Lightweight reusable shopping bags
  • Ballpoint pens, pencils, notebooks

Donors are also encouraged to send cards, notes and children’s artwork with their donations.

All donations should be new or lightly used, laundered and folded and placed in an unsealed box. No trash bags.

If you’d rather donate money, Love from Louisville is collecting donations via Supplies Over Seas.
