Where can I donate supplies?
Ukrainian shipping service Meest-Karpaty is organizing a major effort to send a plane of supplies from Chicago to Kyiv every week, a representative from the company’s location in Palatine said.
They’re looking for military goods, as well as nonperishable food, blankets and clothes, advocates said.
Supplies can be dropped off or shipped to the Chicago location, 6725 W. Belmont Ave. The shipping service is also collecting supplies at 1645 Hicks Road in Rolling Meadows, a representative posted on social media.
Locally, people can donate to the Ukrainian Congress Committee for America in Illinois, advocates said. F.R.E.E., a synagogue for the Russian Jewish community in Chicago, is hosting a fundraiser for Jewish people in Ukraine.
Many groups in Chicago constantly work with refugees and are always taking donations to help the many refugees already in Chicago. World Relief, RefugeeOne and Catholic Charities are all groups that work with federal agencies to resettle refugees.
