Philadelphia community collects winter jackets for children in Ukraine


PHILADELPHIA – St. Vladimir Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral in Philadelphia announces a “Jackets for Children” drive that aims to collect more than 500 new winter jackets for boys and girls ages 2-8 to send to children in Ukraine.

Donations began to be collected in March, and the collection period ends in May. The jackets will be shipped in July. Readers are also invited to donate funds so jackets can be purchased on your behalf or to offset the cost of shipping.
