On February 24, Russia launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. As residents of Greater Nashville, we many not fully know or understand the intricacies of recent engagements between Ukraine and Russia or the geopolitical history of eastern Europe. However, as global citizens we believe that every child and family deserve to live in a safe, healthy community. As the conflict intensifies and thousands of Ukrainians are displaced from their homes, we want our neighbors–regionally and worldwide–to know that United Way of Greater Nashville leads with our humanity. Each day, our team works to shape the future of our community. What we do today matters tomorrow. What we do here matters everywhere. Many recent events–from the pandemic, to the Christmas Day bombing, to floods and tornadoes–have tested us individually, and collectively. But we must continue to step up and help our neighbors. We must be the change we want to see throughout our world.
The following websites list organizations providing assistance to Ukraine.
