Good news from our Razom Toy Drive. It is the 9th consecutive year of a toy drive held at the Ukrainian school Samopomich in New York. And it was yet another successful collection of toys and presents for our mentees in Ukraine – children whose one or both parents were killed in the war, children who need a glimpse of hope and joy for the holidays, who need to know that the world cares. Currently we have over a thousand kids on our list. So this year we even had two days of toy drive, which allowed everyone who wished to support these kids to bring their donations to the location. Thanks to the amazing community of Ukraine supporters the drive has collected a full pallet of gifts, which will be shipped to Ukraine shortly. And your monetary donations will cover the cost of the shipment. These gifts will form a collection of toys, clothes and other presents to be sent to Ukrainian children for birthdays and other holidays throughout the next year.
Our special thanks go to Ivan Makar for supporting the Toy Drive at the Ukrainian School and the help with inviting the parents to join! We are grateful to our incredible Razom Toy Drive team, Oksana Lytvyn, Oksana Korposh, Halyna Ka and Oksana Bazylevych for their continuous hard work! And big thanks to our project leader in Ukraine – Liudmyla Kravtsova, who will make sure the gifts will reach the children on the ground!
Stay tuned for more updates, and to see the happy faces of the little Ukrainians when they receive the gifts – please join our Facebook group.
