Comfort and A Little Cheer for Ukrainian Kids
While Family-to-Family hosts a kids pajama drive every year, this winter we added a second drive for orphaned and displaced children still living in Ukraine. Working with two other nonprofits, ForWellBeing.org and The Ukrainian Refugee Resettlement Project, we distributed a pajama wish list to our donors that resulted in over 1,000 pairs of cozy, warm pajamas as well as 150 blankets! The items were packed up in Florida, shipped to Ukraine, and then distributed to orphanages, hospitals, and boarding schools by a volunteer group of doctors. The goal was to provide warmth and a bit of cheer to children in areas of Ukraine relying only on generators after Russian missile attacks on the energy infrastructure cut off electricity (and heat).
