DENVER (KDVR) — Friday marked 100 days since Russia invaded Ukraine. A local non-profit reminded Coloradans that support for Ukrainians must continue.
Ukrainians of Colorado shared details about the group’s effort in the wake of the war. They have held more than 25 fundraising events across the state and have raised more than $100,000.
That money has been used to send medical supplies, humanitarian supplies, protective gear and funds to orphanages in Ukraine, among other causes. The group continues to plan upcoming events to raise awareness and more money.
