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
