If you have been wanting to donate to the Ukrainians, but you're just not sure where or how to do it, this event could be the answer.

Cardi's Furniture has organized a supply drive to help the people of Ukraine with some basic human necessities.

"As the country of Ukraine is facing its darkest hour after the Russian invasion began on the morning of February 24, 2022, there are many military and civilian casualties, homes destroyed, and millions of people displaced and forced to flee. Those that have remained in Ukraine are facing difficulties unlike anything they have experienced with shortages of daily living necessities such as heat, food, water, clothing…"  The Cardi Brothers
