ETI, Nordell & South Downs Leisure Donate Essential Items to Ukraine
Each business has been collecting supplies for children and babies, non perishable food items, necessary toiletries and basic first aid provisions over the past few weeks.
The collection was organised by Virginija Mitokaite, NPI Manager at Nordell. In just a matter of days she managed to secure transport, establish a drop-off point in Poland, confirm charity and city council contacts in Ukraine and purchase food and medical supplies. The donations will be transported by Actionpoint Packaging and distributed by Friend Fund.
This week saw the first shipment take place, with 10 boxes being packed up by ETI alone. In addition, ETI are donating sleeping bags, blankets, trek mats and backpacks.
Jason Webb, Managing Director at ETI said: “With a number of our employees having family in Ukraine and surrounding countries, the situation in Ukraine has hit very close to home at ETI. Organising a collection is a great way to enable everyone at the company to donate what they can, and we have seen overwhelming generosity so far.”
Jason added: “It’s very important to us that we do everything that we can to help, and we’re hopeful that with the support of employees at ETI, Nordell and South Downs Leisure, we can all come together to make a small difference.”
Actionpoint Packaging are currently raising money to help Virginija Mitokaite donate essential items to Ukraine. If you would like to make a contribution to this, you can do so here.
