Reit-Syd Equipment in Dauphin announced this afternoon that they are donating a total of $25,000 towards a brand new fund to help bring families to the Parkland from Ukraine.

The Parkland Ukrainian Family Fund will be looked after and administered by The Ukrainian Folk Arts Centre and Museum Inc.

The goal of the fund is to give a one-time financial gift to as many families as possible to move from Ukraine to live here in the Parkland area. The funds will include travel and moving expenses, housing, a means of transportation to get around the Parkland and funds for the initial living expenses.

Reit-Syd Equipment is asking individuals, families, organizations, businesses and local government to assist in the effort by donating to the Fund.

Donations can be made at any Fusion Credit Union Branch by asking to have the money deposited into the Parkland Ukrainian Family Fund. You can also mail a cheque to The Ukrainian Folk Art Centre and Museum Inc, Box 658, Dauphin, Manitoba, R7N 2V4. Cheques should be made out to the Ukrainian Folk Art Centre & Museum Inc.

If you have any questions about the fund you can contact Larry at 204-648-5904 or Karen at 204-648-3567.
