FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (PIX11) — Donations for Ukrainian refugees have been pouring in from all around the world since the war began a month ago.
The nonprofit Hope for Ukraine has been working to make a difference for years from its home base in New Jersey. Now, the nonprofit’s focus is on the basics and sending help one storage unit at a time.
Volunteers work almost every day at the site in Florham Park, New Jersey. Yuriy Boyechko co-founded the organization in 2016. They are receiving hundreds of requests a day from refugees.
“When you get these kind of emails, you want to drop everything and work overtime and do whatever you can,” he said.
Medical supplies, personal care items and food are among the items most urgently needed. They are accepting donations at the storage facility on 37 Vreeland Road in Florham Park, New Jersey.
