My wife Anna, her friend Anastasia, and our friends are currently coordinating efforts in central NJ to raise funds to be used for logistics to ship humanitarian aid to Ukraine.
My wife Anna, her friend Anastasia, and a group of our friends organized a humanitarian aid drive for Ukraine. We partnered with Temple B'nai Shalom in East Brunswick, NJ where humanitarian aid goods may be dropped off. Once the items are received, our group of volunteers sorts them and packages them, so they may be dropped off at shipping companies that may take them to Ukraine. Our focus is on priority and essential items including medicine, first aid, dry food, sleeping bags, tactical supplies, etc.
So far, our efforts have been successful. On March 7th, we were able to ship essential items totaling about 1,000lbs to Ukraine via air for free. On March 17th, we shipped another 1,170lbs. We have also filled a container of clothing, blankets, and other non-essential items that will ship directly to Ukraine by sea, also for free.
Our humanitarian drive is ongoing and we have many more inquires from various sources asking us to ship the aid. At this time, we have to start paying for the shipments as the companies that were shipping for free ran out of funds. This is where we need your help in a form of monetary contributions. We are raising funds to help us with logistics to get collected humanitarian aid shipped to Ukraine.
We have received an overwhelming number of requests from the wonderful people in our community to help our cause financially and this is why we set up a Fundly site as a central location to accept monetary contributions. All raised funds will be used for shipments and to purchase items directly where they are needed most. Additionally, we are currently running out of space where we can store packaged items until the shipments go out. Thus, some of the raised funds will go towards a storage facility.
We thank you for your kindness, support, and donation!
