First Successful Furniture Drive
An initiative was started to collect furniture and household items after being introduced to a couple of Ukrainian Refugee families who recently arrived in Canada. These 2 families had been waiting in a hotel for 2 months while they waited for an apartment opening. Thankfully, they were able to take possession of their apartment, but unfortunately had nothing to put in it. With just their clothes and personal belongings with them they needed support. A furniture drive was started and within one week we were able to successfully collect and deliver the donated items to these families in need.
Furniture Drive Continues
We are still collecting gently used furniture and household items to support other Ukrainian Refugees in need. If you or someone you know has items to donate, please complete our Donate Furniture Form. We are hoping to help support as many as Ukrainian Refugee families as possible.
Thank you to all who attended and supported the Ukrainian Dinner Fundraiser.
