Meest USA West is sending parcels out by air every week going into Poland and taken to Lviv; from there the donations will be dispersed to the cities in need. We will be collecting essential items to donate at the fundraiser. Meest has created this Amazon list, which is a good starting point, but if you can buy locally that is even better. The most in-demand items, according to friends on the ground in Ukraine, are protective gear (helmets, vests) and warm camo clothes. Sleeping bags, large containers (water jugs, gas cans) and medical supplies also (celox, tourniquets, bandages) and hand warmers.
BRING IN-KIND DONATIONS TO CONCERT AND WE WILL BRING TO MEEST USA WEST (IN GLENDALE)
