Collection for Ukraine. UKRAINE DONATIONS

How to Help with Donations

The needs for the people of Ukraine are growing at a rapid pace. Currently,
there are already more than 2.9 million people in need of assistance. There is
great risk of additional suffering both within Ukraine and in those neighboring
countries where people may flee for safety.

Catholic Relief Services (CRS) and their partners are in need of immediate
support to meet both ongoing needs, as well as those related to families forced
to flee their homes as the situation intensifies.

Bishop Gruss has requested that an emergency special collection be taken for
Ukraine in parishes this weekend, March 6, 2022. Checks are to be made payable
to the Diocese of Saginaw, with Ukraine written in the memo. The funds will then
be sent to CRS and its partners already in Ukraine and bordering countries,
ready to provide safe shelter, hot meals, hygiene supplies, fuel to keep warm,
transport to safe areas, counseling support and more.  For more information or
questions, you may contact Maria Coss at 989-797-6646 or
