Local organizations helping Ukraine effort

Vermont Distillers

MARLBORO - Vermont Distillers has announced that it will be donating 25% of proceeds from their Vermont-made Catamount Vodka toward humanitarian relief for Ukraine. According to distillery CEO Ed Metcalfe, when New Hampshire and Vermont decided to discontinue the sales of Russian vodka, this became a logical way for them to support the citizens of Ukraine.

River Valley Market

WILMINGTON - On Saturday, March 5, River Valley Market will be donating all wages and profits to SaveTheChildren.org. #SaveTheChildren is  a worldwide organization that is helping 500,000-plus Ukrainian refugees, mostly women and children, as they flee their country and arrive in Poland, Hungary, Romania, and beyond.
Shopping with River Valley Market on Saturday can help provide children and families with immediate aid, such as food, water, hygiene kits, and cash assistance. The organization has a goal of raising $700,000 for Ukraine relief and thus far has raised $650,000.  Those who cannot shop on Saturday may consider making a donation directly to Save The Children. River Valley Market is located at 611 VT Route 100.

Congregation Beth El

BENNINGTON - For those looking for ways to offer help to Jewish brothers and sisters in Ukraine, Congregation Beth El recommends two places to make donations:
The World Union for Progressive Judaism has launched a Ukraine Crisis Fund. They ask people from all over the world to make donations toward the support of the Jewish community in Ukraine. Money will be spent on individuals and communities to ensure their safety and well-being. If the conflict escalates further, money will become a crucial and necessary help for many people. If the tension eases, the fund will be spent on the development of the progressive Jewish community in Ukraine. Visit wupj.org/give/ukraine to make a donation.
ProjectKesher.org is a network of thousands of Jewish women and girls in Ukraine helping to get people to relative safety, health care, food, and counseling support. Visit www.projectkesher.org for their donation link. Donations can also be made by mail. Make checks payable to Project Kesher and mail to Project Kesher, 2660 Broadway #16, New York, NY 10025.
