Cans & Bottles for Ukraine
Our effort to support Ukraine continues…. Money collected from redeemable cans & bottles will go to Episcopal Relief and Development –
who are already in Ukraine doing good work.
We are accepting any and all redeemable cans and bottles.
Please bring your donations to Church – either on a Sunday morning, a Tuesday or Thursday during office hours – 10 to 1 pm or by arrangement with Tamsin Lucey 774-200-4279.
Can and Bottle Drives have been scheduled at Yankee Spirits in
Sturbridge on Saturday May 14, 9 am to 1 pm AND Saturday June 4, 9 am to 1 pm.
Donations may also be dropped off on either of those days at Yankee Spirits.
Please contact Tamsin Lucey if you are able to help on either Saturday at Yankee Spirits or at any other time. We need volunteers to pick up, and sort, and deliver donations.
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You….
All 35 boxes – weighing a total of 575 lbs with an estimated total
value of over $6,000, have now been safely delivered to hospitals in Lviv, Ukraine.
The donations of Over The Counter Medical Supplies poured in from the community as did money – it was just amazing – far beyond our estimation and what we hoped to collect. With monies donated we were able to purchase items not available over the counter: suture needles, cervical collars for neck injuries, tourniquets for field and hospital use, surgical clamps, burn wound dressings and so much more.
Just in case you are wondering what made up the 575 lbs – just a few statistics……. Gauze Pads, Rolls and Wound Dressings – 52 lbs., Elastic Bandages – 29 lbs., Band-Aids – 13 lbs., Medical Tape – 25 lbs., Antiseptic wipes – 24 lbs., Medical Exam Gloves – 25 lbs., Pain Relief – 42 lbs., Antibiotic Creams – 21 lbs, Professional Medical Supplies – 27 lbs. And lots more besides.
Thank you to the Holy Trinity community for making it all possible – We can say we helped make a difference to providing medical supplies to those in need in Lviv Ukraine.
With grateful thanks,
