Polish American Home in Bayonne collects donations for Ukrainian refugees
The Polish American Home in Bayonne has become a drop-off point for those looking to donate to refugees fleeing Ukraine.
The community center is located on West 22nd St.
Organizers from the Polish Community Circle of Bayonne are collecting first aid supplies like band-aids, bandages, pain killers and gauze. They say the items will help those who are wounded, especially Ukrainian soldiers. They're also accepting feminine products.
Organizers say they are not taking financial donations right now, but they will take greeting cards with words of encouragement.
Once everything is collected, organizers say it will be part of a bigger collection of goods that will go to Brooklyn. From there, organizers will ship everything to Europe through the Ukrainian Children's Foundation.
They say they have a direct contact with boots on the ground in both Poland and Ukraine who will handle distribution of the donated items.
