The Hillsborough YMCA, with support from Magnate CARES and The Rotary Club of Hillsborough, is organizing a Ukraine Goods Drive to collect and deliver essential goods to help families and communities directly impacted by the crisis unfolding in the Ukraine.
 
“The devastation taking place in the Ukraine has left millions of its citizens, young and old, without the very basic necessities of life,” commented Ben Green, executive
director of the Hillsborough YMCA. “We have an opportunity and the ability to help those suffering the most through our collective efforts.”

“In addition to Rotary’s own efforts to deliver needed support to the Ukraine people,” noted Abed Medawar, the Rotary Club of Hillsborough board member leading the club’s
partnership with the Y, “we responded immediately to their request to join this community-focused effort.”
 
Hillsborough residents can support the drive by donating the following (new items only):
blankets, feminine products, pillows, diapers, baby formulae, flashlights, and lithium batteries. Items may be dropped off at the Hillsborough YMCA, 19 East Mountain Road,
Hillsborough, NJ, April 1- 30, from 5AM to 8PM, Monday through Friday, and 7AM to 1PM Saturday and Sunday.

For more information, please contact Ben Green at 908-369-0490 ext. 714, or by email at bgreen@gscymca.org.
