Middletown, New York based President Container Group has provided thousands of corrugated containers to three Ukrainian relief organizations, as well as medical supplies to a fourth group via the company’s “PCG Cares” initiative.
More than 4.3 million residents of Ukraine have fled their country due to the Russian invasion, making the exodus the largest European refugee crisis since World War II. Ukrainian relief organizations contacted President Container Group’s PCG Cares initiative, requesting corrugated containers to package supplies to benefit Ukrainian refugee families. The corrugated boxes donated by PCG Cares were filled with food, hygiene products, pet food and backpacks. Medical supplies were sent to Poland, where the goal is to transport them across the border into Ukraine to assist those in need.
“Our goal is to help each other, one box at a time,” said President Container Group Vice President Larry Grossbard. “We are all responsible for doing our part to serve the communities around us. By providing corrugated containers, we will provide one more necessary item to help aid the Ukrainian refugee crisis, or food pantries, shelters and other such organizations, helping them stretch their resources further and help more people in need.”
“These humanitarian groups are providing crucial resources, assistance and support during what is an international crisis. If other organizations are still in need, we would love to help in any way that we can,” said Grossbard.
To date, donations have been sent to:
Baranova 27, a Ukrainian Relief Fund, Fort Lee, N.J.
Ukrainian relief via Royal Albert’s Palace, Edison, NJ
Plast Ukrainian Scouting Organization, New York City branch
Holy Trinity Ukrainian Catholic Church Relief Effort, Kerhonkson, NY
President Container Group’s generosity has been graciously acknowledged. “Plast Ukrainian Scouting Organization New York City branch gratefully acknowledges your contribution of 130 cartons for our Ukraine fundraiser,” said organization representative Natalie Danysh.
