Ukraine Relief Fund

Our hearts are with the people of Ukraine and we’ve established a Relief Fund at JCC Brooklyn to support our brethren who are living through a devastating crisis. We need your help!  We are working directly with the Ukrainian Consulate General in New York and UJA Federation of NY to help with the most pressing needs such as food, water, and medicine for refugees, and temporary housing for those displaced by the war.  100% of your donation will go directly to the people of Ukraine.


Below is a list of priority items for humanitarian relief drawn up by Ukraine’s Consulate in the United States.

Should you want to drop those items in person, check out these addresses

Meest Warehouse – 600 Markley Street, Port Reading, NJ 07064.

>Packages dropped off at our NJ warehouse will be delivered for FREE, and ONLY to our Meest Humanitarian Fund in Lviv. Our Humanitarian Fund will distribute packages to various cities in need of humanitarian aid in Ukraine.

Meest offices and agent locations in these states -NY, NJ PA, CT, MA and MD.

>Packages dropped off at Meest offices or agent locations will be delivered directly to the organization of your choice at a heavily-discounted price of $2.30 per pound and $5 per parcel.
