The Rotary Club of Southborough is asking the community to help them support aid for refugees fleeing Ukraine. The Southborough chapter of the international organization is partnering with a chapter in Romania.
According to CNN, as of yesterday over 412,000 had crossed the border between Ukraine and Romania since the Russian military invasion began. While most have moved on, about 80,000 were reported to remain. And while the influx rate has dropped, as of Sunday, 14,000 people per day were still crossing the border.
The Rotary will be collecting funds at the Transfer Station on Saturday to help purchase supplies. Alternatively, you can mail a check.
Below is the Rotary’s call for help:
Southborough to Bucharest…. reaching out to help
On Saturday March 19th from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM at the Southborough Transfer Station, members of the Rotary Club of Southborough will be collecting donations to help the mothers and children fleeing the Ukraine.
The Rotary Club of Southborough is coordinating this effort with the Rotary Club of Bucharest, Romania to purchase of supplies needed to comfort refugees arriving in Romania.
You can help by making a donation of any size at the Transfer Station on Saturday or mailing your donation to PO Box 391, Southborough, MA.
If donating by mail, please make the donation payable to the Rotary Club of Southborough with a note designating the donation to help the refugees from the Ukraine.
Updated (3/22/22 8:10 am): Due to last weekend’s rain, the group will be collecting at the Transfer Station this Saturday, March 26th.
