War veterans' social service continues aid to needy
by Jaroslaw Kaczaj
PHILADELPHIA - For almost 50 years the Social Service of Ukrainian War Veterans located in Philadelphia has been helping needy Ukrainian veterans here and abroad and, since its independence, in Ukraine.
To realize this noble work, patriotic Ukrainians respond with generous donations to the so-called "Lystopadova Zbirka" fund-raising drive during the month of November each year. Among them is Catherine H. Popiel, from Pittsburgh, who donated $5,000 for veterans in Ukraine.
The collected funds are transferred once a year to veterans in Ukraine with the help of devoted veterans in the United States. The board of directors of the Social Service of Ukrainian War Veterans recently singled out two members of the 1st Division of the Ukrainian National Army, Yuri Ferencevych and Yarema Bachynsky, for their support and dedication, recognizing them with certificates of appreciation.
Donations may be sent to: Social Service of Ukrainian War Veterans, 700 Cedar Road, Jenkintown, PA 19046.
