KRM Thanksgiving Event at the Silver Dollar


Vanessa Cantley, Susie Hoyt and the crew at the Silver Dollar Restaurant (1761 Frankfort Avenue 40206) are organizing the fourth annual Thanksgiving lunch for KRM clients on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 22. It has been a beautiful act of welcome and hospitality that they organize as their way of giving back to KRM and the refugee community. Also, it is an incredible outpouring of community goodwill and cheer that is spread to our clients. Last year, they served close to 225 clients and had around 50-75 volunteers participate. Attached are a few photos from last year’s event.


The menu will observe Muslim dietary restrictions, and no alcohol will be served. They are organizing a children’s area for the lunch. All in all, it will be a wonderful meal and a fantastic day for all who attend.

That said, they are in need of a large number of volunteers. Roles involve set up and clean up, serving food, picking up KRM clients to bring to the dinner, and helping with the children’s area, to just to name a few. A commitment to volunteer can only be for a few hours. If you are interested in volunteering, please email Silver Dollar Restaurant at  [email protected].

Thanks so much for your generosity!




Donate to the HYR-KRM Partnership!

Since Spring of 2017, HYR has partnered with Kentucky Refugee Ministries to give KRM soccer players an opportunity to play HYR soccer free of charge.  We have had many generous families donate time to the cause by driving KRM players to practices and games or donating money that goes to pay for soccer cleats, socks, or shin guards or to pay a driver to take the HCM van around town picking up young players.  We average around 50 KRM players per season from over 15 different countries.  

It is a great opportunity for these newly relocated international families to integrate with the Louisville community and make friends.  It is also a great opportunity for HYR players to get to meet and play with often very talented international players.  (Anyone notice how few 2018 French World Cup Champion players this summer were born in France?)  A true win-win for HYR and Louisville.  

Basically, it costs around $100 per player per season to sponsor a player. This covers the driver, gas, and soccer equipment.   HYR and KRM each contribute to the cause, and we also collect additional donations from participant families at registration.  We get asked at times from HYR grandparents or community members at large how they can donate to that cause, so we set up this site to allow people to support this meaningful program.
