With a live orchestra loudly playing in the background, an 18-wheeler full of supplies headed out of the parking lot of a Citrus Heights-based charity Thursday, as local pastors and community leaders joined to celebrate the shipment of their first container of relief supplies to Ukraine.
“We are motivated by the amount of people who have reached out and offered emotional or material support,” Ukraine Relief said in a statement, promising to supply those in Ukraine with clothes, food, medical aid and shelter. “Ukraine Relief would like to thank every person involved in relief efforts.”
Mostly made up of the area’s large Ukrainian immigrant population, organizers say the newly formed volunteer organization was created “to connect and unite people, businesses, organizations, and religious communities together” to provide aid to those caught in the current turmoil in Ukraine.
