SALT LAKE CITY — FOX 13 is teaming up with the Larry H. and Gail Miller Family Foundation for its "Driven to Assist" donation drive to benefit refugees fleeing Ukraine.
The goal is to get much needed monetary donations as well as essential supplies to those suffering in Ukraine, and we invite our viewers to participate in the cause!
Monetary donations will be matched up to $2 million, and will be distributed to trusted organizations assisting those displaced by war.
“In times of crisis, Utahns respond. They take action to serve, lift, and love, and that is why I’m proud to be a member of this community," said Gail Miller. "We have about 1,500 Ukrainian neighbors who live here in Utah. We are all heartbroken by the desperate situation their loved ones face in Ukraine. This is an opportunity for us to come together, put our arms around our neighbors, and show them that our hearts are united.”
In addition to monetary donations, Utahns can donate critically needed items at various locations along the Wasatch front.
Items that will be collected include:
- Feminine Hygiene items
- New shoes (children or adult sizes)
- New socks (children or adult sizes)
- New coats or waterproof jackets (children or adult sizes)
- Warm hats, gloves and mittens
- Base layers/long underwear
