Longford PPN and Longford Civil Defense Ukrainian Appeal

By March 3, 2022No Comments

As you are all aware the Ukrainian people need our help and support in these devastating and harrowing times due to the unprovoked attack on their country by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Longford PPN and Longford Civil Defence are now launching an appeal for emergency items, non-perishable foods, animal food and toiletries. (Items listed below).

We would not be able to do this without the kind support of our Partners and dedicated drop off points:

  • Lús na Greine Family Resource Centre, Granard
  • Bridgeways Resource Centre, Ballymahon
  • Longford Women’s Link (training room)

Donations will be collected from the above depots at various intervals by Emma Reid and the Civil Defence team, itemised, recorded and stored in their store room. I have spoken with Green Speed and Dublin WOSP and a collection date will be finalised over the coming weeks. All donations will be transported to the Polish Red Cross.

Our thoughts are with Ukrainian people everywhere, our Polish, Latvian, Lithuanian, Slovakian and Romanian residents in County Longford and their countries who have stepped up and opened their doors to Ukrainian refugees. County Longford will continue to support you

Kind Regards,
