Toy Drive: Supporting the Children of Ukraine

Toy Drive for the Children of Fallen Heroes is the rapidly expanding initiative carried out by Razom volunteers to render aid to families of Ukrainian military who died in action. We are collaborating with Волонтерська Сотня, Допомога Дітям Героїв, Майбутнє України and Логістичний штаб to identify potential donors, assemble care packages in the U.S. and deliver them directly to the families.

The war has brought tragedy to many Ukrainian families. Soldiers are giving their lives for Ukraine — for peaceful skies above their homeland. The least we can do is take care of their families. Our volunteers in Ukraine meet with the families to learn about their needs and pass the information on to us. Razom, with the cooperation of numerous partners, then organizes Toy Drives around the U.S. and mails package with donations to the families.

 

We gather:

  • Monetary donations;
  • Stationery supplies;
  • Toys and games;
  • Clothes on case-by-case basis (currently accepting only fall/winter items). Initial packages were mailed during Maidan and have reached over 100 families since then.

 

“No child in an orphan,” as Ukrainians would say. Fall is upon Ukraine and winter is coming closer. Razom encourages you to join and donate warm clothes and shoes. We are happy to receive monetary donations as well in order to purchase the necessary items! Please see the progress reports and photos that are posted regularly on our webpage and Facebook group.

 

Let’s make a difference. Together!
