Ukrainian Orthodox Church of USA  

Currently (March 14), according to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church officers in South Bound Brook/Somerset, there are urgent needs for donations, but shipping costs are becoming prohibitive.  At this time, cash donations are recommended.

Donations can be dropped off at or mailed to: Ukrainian Orthodox Center, 135 Davidson Avenue, Somerset, New Jersey 08873

Also a good giving option: providing direct assistance to Caritas programs in neighboring countries receiving refugees from Ukraine:

Caritas Poland (for Ukrainian refugees in Poland and for IDPs in Ukraine)
