If you want some homemade perogies, that also support those on the front lines in Ukraine, a local group has you covered.

The group, which included a number of newcomers that came to Dauphin as a part of the Parkland Ukrainian Family Fund, is making homemade perogies and the proceeds will be going towards feeding those fighting in Ukraine.

Annette Clement is one of the organizers, and she says the original idea stems from a news story that she saw.

"I saw something similar happen in Edmonton, and I forwarded it to a couple of groups that I'm affiliated with in Dauphin. Alexandra came back to me and said maybe we should try and do a fundraiser in Dauphin, to help support the frontline Ukrainian soldiers."

The group will be working this weekend to try and make all of the perogies that have been ordered, and Clement says that even if you don't want to order any, there are other ways you can help out.

"You could also donate ingredients to help us make perogies, or you could volunteer your time. We are getting together this Saturday and Sunday, which is February 25th and 26th, at the Friendship Centre, from 10 in the morning, until 3 p.m."

There are three different types of perogies, potato and cheese, cabbage, and berry available. All three types will also be available in a gluten-free option. The classic potato and cheese, and cabbage perogies will be $25 for five dozen, while the berry and gluten-free options will be $30 dollars for five dozen.
