CANNED FOOD DRIVE to help the DEFENDERS of UKRAINE
The Ukrainian League is assisting with the initiative to collect non-perishable foods (e.g. canned soup, chili, canned tuna, canned beans, canned veggies, canned fruits, canned meats, pasta, rice, cereal, buckwheat, etc.). Any type of canned, non-fragile item that can withstand shipping and transportation by sea will do.
The collection bin is located in the bar downstairs, at the entrance.
This aid will be delivered to the volunteers in Kyiv, who are working to provide for soldiers in 92nd, 80th, and 79th battalion brigades, as well as The Right Sector (Pravyi Sektor).
Shipping will be done via Ukraine Express at a discounted rate.
Please do not hesitate to contact the League with any questions.
In addition to canned food, other items needed are:
550 Military Paracord Rope (for survival bracelets)
Warm Camo clothing
While these items are optional - the primary focus is the food drive - they are also important and necessary in the field. If you were inclined to purchase paracord rope, following are some of the links to give an idea of what is needed:
1000 feet rope (will make 60-75 survival bracelets)
300 feet rope (will make 18-21 bracelets)
100 feet rope (will make 6-7 bracelets)
