During our next assembly on Sun 5/15 at 10am, the Activism and Service Committee will be collecting items for two separate organizations to support those impacted by the crisis in Ukraine.
If you’re unable to attend the assembly, you are welcome to drop off your supplies in advance at drop-off houses in the Swissvale and Greenfield areas. It would be greatly appreciated if you could package items separately if you’re wanting to donate to both organizations. St. Peter and St. Paul Ukrainian Orthodox Church (Carnegie) & Nataliya European Food Market (Squirrel Hill):
Suggested items include dry cereal, protein bars, water purifying tabs, small peanut butter containers, small canned items with pop tops, and medical supplies you would find in a first aid kit (no sharp objects). The church will be helping with sorting and storing items, and the food market will be shipping the items and making sure they get to people in Ukraine.
Rankin Croatian Home: Items needed include basic hygiene products (soap, tissues, toothpaste, toothbrushes, feminine products, deodorant, etc), phone chargers, paper products (plates, napkins, plastic utensils), tea and coffee, diapers, blankets, rain coats, and dry pet food. Rankin Croatian Home is collecting items to send to Poland for the Ukrainian refugees.
