UCC-APC Supports Rural Communities


Community supporting Communities!

In a time like this, when we may feel lost and helpless, helping others is just the thing to do! UCC-APC organized a food donation drive for the Food Bank of Lamont County and the Town of Bruderheim. Coronavirus COVID-19 has touched the lives of everyone in many ways. Some have been impacted more than others. Easter is a time to celebrate life but without food, there is no life. The community together with the Ukrainian Canadian Congress Alberta Provincial Council collected over 550 kg of food items! We were humbled to see how many community members brought what they could to support those who are less fortunate!

Дякуємо українській громаді за підтримку! Ми змогли допомогти тим людям, які потребують їжі в цей великодній час. Особлива подяка тим волонтерам, які в суботу допомагали збирати харчі та продукти.

Thank you to our @Ukrainian community members and organizations for your very generous support for rural Alberta @foodbanks where first Ukrainian immigrants settled in 1890s.

It was a pleasure to work in cooperation with MLA Jackie Armstrong-Homeniuk. We would like to thank the following organizations for their financial support to purchase food: Ukrainian Canadian Social Services Edmonton Branch, Ukrainian National Federation of Canada (Edmonton branch)
Ukrainian Women’s Organization of Canada, Edmonton Society

Happy Easter!
Христос Воскрес! Воістину Воскрес!
