Greenwich community bands together to pack up 36,000 meals to send to Ukrainian refugees in Poland
The Greenwich community came together to pack up meals at Christ Church Greenwich to send to Europe for Ukrainian refugees.
Dozens of volunteers turned out Friday to help.
Organizers say 36,000 meals will be sent over to Poland to help Ukrainian refugees who fled their country because of the Russian invasion.
This is the second time Christ Church Greenwich organized the community to pack meals together for refugees. Each meal consists of dry food, which can be eaten once water it added to them.
"I think the response all around the country and around the world is people want to do something and make an impact," said Rev. Marek Zabriskie. "Everyone has been so grieved by the Russian invasion and our hearts go out to people in Ukraine and those who had to flee. Their lives have been completely disrupted and this is a tangible way to make a difference, to pack meals, 36,000 meals for Ukrainian refugees in Poland."
