Update 2: The fundraiser gathered 10 boxes of medical supplies, military first aid kits, solar powered chargers etc. by the end of April for the next humanitarian airlift from Seattle.
Update: the fundraiser was very popular, and the school decided to continue it. Please help by donating medical supplies for Ukraine from the school’s Amazon wish list! This fundraiser is running till the end of April.
The Polish School in Bellevue organized a fundraiser “Pomagamy Ukrainie” for Ukraine relief as a teaching moment for the kids and ended up on a local TV. Q13 Fox ran a video-clip on prime-time news on Wednesday, March 30, and there is also a nice write up on their website. The clip can be viewed on the same page. The principal Anna Cholewinska and parent Joanna Millick are featured in the clip.
The school has collected humanitarian aid items such as trauma kits, emergency blankets, bandages, first aid medications and emergency food rations. The gathered boxes have been included in the airlift transport that will be going to Lublin, Poland to be transported to Ukraine. The fundraiser was so popular that most likely it will be continued.
