Ukraine Welcome Project

Matviichuck Family Ukraine Welcome Project

From time to time I like to use this platform to share opportunities to give back or help those in need. My best friend became involved in this Ukraine Welcome Project to help a local Ukranian refugee family settling in the Capital District. Scroll down to read their story and see how you can help.

Meet the Matviichuck Family

The Matviichuck’s – Artem, Myla, and their two boys Stivan and Eldar-  fled their homes in Ukraine after a bombing attack and are getting settled in the Burnt Hills community. Because they had to leave so abruptly, they don’t have much and are literally starting over rebuilding their lives in this country.

A benefit has been planned to help raise funds for their family. On Thursday, July 28th 4pm-8pm, bring your kids and family to Huck Finn’s Playland. Purchase gets you a wrist band for unlimited play and all proceeds go to the Matviichuck Family. Please note, that refunds will not be issued as it is purchased through Venmo.

If you are not local or can not attend and feel called to give back, a GoFund Me and a registry has been created as well to help get their family started.
