Napa Valley to Ukraine Refugee Support Fund
Project need $4,500
Refugees displaced by the war are now living in our community. They wish to raise their children in a safe, supportive environment, and to work and become part of the community as well. They need our short-term financial help to get started.
Your donation will be income to the “Ukrainian American House” that has registered 501(с) 3 non-profit organisation. No administration fee. 100% of fund goes to the project.
Napa Valley has had several refugee families recently settle here. While each has individual family sponsors, there are significant financial needs to get these newcomers firmly established. The most urgent need is for a family of four (a 49-year-old grandmother, her 26 and 11-year-old daughters, and an adorable 3-year-old granddaughter) who arrived in the USA on August 1. They fled from two crises: their home in Mariupol was destroyed, and they were victims of domestic violence. They arrived with almost no possessions. Until they can gain full-time employment, they will need financial assistance with housing (first three to four months rent as they have no credit history in the U.S.) rent, security deposit) a donated car, funds for car + registration and insurance, clothing, household and school supplies, etc. Other Ukrainian refugees we are hosting will also need help with deposits on a rental and funds for car related expenses Our friends at Napa Ford Lincoln will service donated cars for refugees without charge.
Donations of cash and in-kind items such as a well-running car and quality household items. Donations are tax-deductible thanks to our partnership with UA House, a nonprofit serving refugees.
