Humanitarian aid news and list of current needs

Dear Friends,

We have formed The New Haven CT Ukrainian American Humanitarian Aid Fund which is a non-profit organization (pending IRS approval). As we have been since the beginning, we are made up of volunteers who receive absolutely no financial benefit.

The core of our group stems from leadership at St Michael the Archangel Ukrainian Catholic Church, the Ukrainian American Veterans (Bishop John Stock Post 33), and the Knights of Columbus Council 16253, all of New Haven, Connecticut. We work closely with Father Roman Manulak, a priest with a team of people receiving and distributing the aid we send.

We supply humanitarian aid to people in Ukraine impacted by the war and in need, completely free of charge. Every dollar donated goes toward helping people in Ukraine.

Items needed

This week an advisory committee spoke with our man in Lviv, Father Roman, who shared some current needs for the soldiers, active and wounded. The following are the current needs:

  1. Dried, high protein souls and breakfast oatmeal. Stuff that you can add hot water, mix and eat. There’s a lot of nutritious foods available that are dried. Look for a good amount of protein.
  2. NEW Mens underwear, tee shirts, and tube socks. NEW Men’s pajamas.
  3. Diapers for children and for adults. Lots of wounded people.
  4. For the wounded: sterile gauze, nitrile gloves, AND stuff that make up a first aid kit.

We cannot accept clothing items except for what is noted above.

New Volunteering hours and collection drop:
Tuesdays from 5-7 pm, working in the church hall.
Saturdays from 8-11 am, working in the church hall.

If anyone has some extra plastic packing bubbles, donations would be helpful for filling any empty spaces in the boxes.

Mask usage is recommended.

Thank you for your help. It is greatly appreciated.

Peace to you,

Paul Zalonski
