Local group leading effort to provide first aid kits for Ukraine
A local group is working together to prepare first aid kits to help Ukraine’s refugees.
Char Blundy told the Beacon, “My friends and I spend a lot of our time sewing and we wanted to do something to help Ukraine’s refugees. We decided that first aid kits would be very much in need especially for those who had to leave with so little. Our goal is to make 200 and fill them with the following supplies: band aids, gauze roll, gauze pads, adhesive tape, antibiotic cream, pain cream, Tylenol, scissors, Q-tips, disposable gloves and a small sewing kit. We would like to have these all completed by May 18th. We would appreciate your help with the cost of buying the supplies and shipping. Any extra money will be donated to Help Ukraine, a humanitarian aid organization. Whatever you can donate will be greatly appreciated not only by us but for those who need it the most in Ukraine.”
The group has set up a GoFundMe to raise funds at https://gofund.me/d6fd978f.
Even a small donation could help the group reach their fundraising goal.
