USA Fundraiser for Ukraine
Canisius’s Undergraduate Student Association (USA) will be holding an ongoing change collection fundraiser for humanitarian needs for those in Ukraine because of the war currently taking place between Ukraine and Russia.
According to Zoe Kaminski, executive vice president of USA, the funds gained from this will be donated to the Kosciuszko Foundation. This foundation, according to their website, “is dedicated to promote educational and cultural exchanges between the United States and Poland and to increase American understanding of Polish culture and history.” The Kosciuszko Foundation currently has volunteers on the ground in Poland and Ukraine, supporting the relocation of women and children. They are also funding buses for the transportation of Ukrainian people, supplying medical supplies, food, clothing and much more.
Kaminski said, “This event is being held in solidarity for citizens of Ukraine who have been forced to relocate from their homes. As the situation in Ukraine is very dynamic, donating funds is the best way to help. Funds collected will support the purchase of food, clothing, housing and other relocation-related expenses for Ukrainians.”
Kaminski explained that she spearheaded this fundraiser with support from other members of the USA.
If you would like to donate to this fundraiser, keep a lookout for USA members that are going around with change collection containers. If you have any questions regarding the fundraiser, email Zoe Kaminski at firstname.lastname@example.org
