July 6, 2022

From/від Brian Snyder:

YMCA of Triangle is offering Summer Day Camp Program scholarships for refugees/newcomers across their 15+ Triangle area locations. YMCA summer day camps offer plenty of outdoor play, peer interaction and learning experiences. Don't forget trained counselors and lots of fun! My own children have been going to YMCA youth programs for over 10 years. Please message me and I will explain how to set up your YMCA account and register for Camps.

YMCA of Triangle пропонує стипендії за програмою літніх денних таборів для біженців/новоприбулих в нашому регіоні (Triangle). Літні денні табори YMCA пропонують багато ігор на свіжому повітрі, спілкування з однолітками та навчальний досвід. Не забувайте про кваліфікованих консультантів і багато розваг! Мої власні діти відвідують молодіжні програми YMCA більше 10 років. Будь ласка, напишіть мені, і я поясню, як налаштувати обліковий запис YMCA та зареєструватися на табори.

Thank you, Brian, for all of your help for our Ukrainian newcomers in the Triangle!

FAQs

You've got questions and we have the answers

Who are Ukrainians in the Carolinas?

We are a network of volunteers throughout the Carolinas dedicated to assisting the people of Ukraine and promoting Ukrainian culture in the Carolinas. Our network has been operational in the Triangle for the last 8 years, ever since Russia invaded Ukraine. We have been collecting and shipping medical supplies to Ukraine, helping refugees, wounded warriors, families of perished Ukrainian heroes and orphans. We have hosted numerous cultural events and advocated for assistance to Ukraine. Since February 24, 2022, when Russia started its new phase of war in Ukraine, we have become an even stronger and larger group and welcome your support. We have media coverage, politicians’ attention, but most importantly - everybody’s willingness to help Ukraine’s brave military and citizens. We already shipped several containers of medical supplies, so generously donated to us by local supporters of Ukraine and of freedom. We also provided localized support to various cities throughout Ukraine where there was a great need for food and medical supplies.

What is your status? Are you an officially recognized charitable organization?

We have incorporated in North Carolina and are in the process of applying for a 501(c)(3) charitable status. We hope to receive it by the end of this year, and upon receipt, all donations will be granted a tax-deductible status retroactively.

Where can I send my monetary donation?

You can write a check to Ukrainians in the Carolinas or PayPal or Zelle your donation to donations.ukrainians.carolinas@gmail.com

Can I donate clothing or other goods?

At the moment, the border is overwhelmed with various humanitarian supplies from European nations, so we are focusing our efforts on securing and shipping medical supplies only.

What else can I do to help in supporting Ukraine against the Russian invasion?

Spread the word! Contact your elected representatives and ask them to provide air defense systems to Ukraine, expedite legislation to allow Ukrainian refugees into US, and secure humanitarian corridors into sieged Ukrainian cities.

I have a press inquiry or want to schedule an interview
