Here is a list of items Maritimers can donate to help people in Ukraine


Ukrainians in the Maritimes have launched efforts to help the people of Ukraine.

Anastasiia Mereshchuk, a member of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress in Halifax, has started Stand with Ukraine Merch, a non-profit initiative to sell T-shirts to help raise funds for humanitarian support.

“All of the proceeds will go to the Ukrainian foundations to address Ukrainian army needs and everyday needs for civilians,” she said.

Oleksii Shatov, owner of Topaz Transport Inc., said volunteers are also collecting items such as medical supplies and clothes, and organizing a way to pick them up from various locations in the Maritimes and transport them to Ukraine.

In Nova Scotia, items can be dropped off at 1 Kingswood Drive, unit 200, in Hammonds Plains, N.S.

In Charlottetown, items can be dropped off at 149 Sherwood Road, Sherwood Truck & Auto Repair.

Oksana Tesla, a representative of the Ukrainian community in Fredericton, said people have been dropping off items at volunteers’ homes in the Moncton, Saint John and Fredericton areas. The group is deciding on a drop-off location to share publicly.
