Verona artist Elina Rosenblum is originally from Ukraine and she is letting her fellow residents here know that the Ukrainian church in Clifton is collecting humanitarian aid for the 1 million refugees who have fled the country in the wake of Vladimir Putin’s invasion.
Right now, Rosenblum says, the church is mostly looking for:
- medicines, such as Tylenol and Ibuprofen
- triage supplies
- baby formula
- hygiene products like wipes
- feminine products
Anyone with supplies can bring them directly to the church, which is located at 635 Broad Street in Clifton, between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. every day by this Sunday, March 6. “Or, if it’s more convenient, they can drop the donations off at my front porch at 1 Old Farm Road in Verona,” Rosenblum says, “and I will bring everything to the church over the weekend. Several people have already dropped off stuff, which I am so thankful for!”
If you are able to make a financial donation to help the refugees, Rosenblum suggests Razom For Ukraine. “Razom” means “together” in Ukrainian.
