The Ukrainian Community of Dauphin came together last weekend for a pierogi fundraiser supporting the front-line troops in Ukraine 

Over 50 volunteers came together to roll, cut, and stuff almost 12,000 pierogies throughout the weekend. After the ingredient cost, over $3500 was raised in support. 

Annette Clement who's an organizer of the fundraiser tells us just how large an undertaking this was. 

"Well, we made 988 dozen pierogies this past weekend". . . "We weren't anticipating the magnitude of the orders that people called in. we sure appreciate all the people who called in to get their orders."

Potato and cheddar were by far the highest-demand pierogi on the list, but there were also potato and cottage cheese, cabbage, berry pierogies, and gluten-free options made as well.

Clement also sends gratitude to all the local people and businesses that donated ingredients.

"A very very big thank you to the Dauphin Friendship Centre for allowing us to host this event...  Koshowski and Birss' for donating potatoes and Dauphin Consumer Co-op for donating flour. We also had donations, monetary and food donations given to us from various people, and of course the amazing volunteers."

The volunteer group returns to the Dauphin Friendship Centre this Sunday, March 5th to continue to make another 200 dozen pierogis to fill the remaining orders.

Anyone looking to volunteer in the process can go to the Dauphin Friendship Centre this Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm.
