On October 23 the second container with approximately 600 boxes departed from Sacramento. The container was loaded with mainly warm clothes of different types and sizes, including children’s clothes. A few boxes, of flour, rice and snacks were also generously provided by the volunteers and added to this shipment.
The churches that kindly collected clothes and volunteered to make this happen are Bethany Slavic Missionary Church (Pastor Adam Bondaruk), Slavic Trinity Church (Pastor Viktor Vronskyy), Slavic Evangelical Baptist Church (Pastor Nikolay Bugriev) and many more. Almost 40 volunteers participated in this mission.
The container will arrive to Ukraine in mid-December. The contents of the container will be distributed between over 150 refugees from the Eastern Ukraine, as well as between those in need in cities of Donetsk and Luhansk.
A big thank you to everyone who donated their time, clothes and finances to make this happen!
