NH groups collect supplies for people in need in Ukraine

Granite State groups have come together to hold vigils, fundraisers and donation drives to support those in Ukraine. On Sunday, a group from Manchester collected first aid kits, socks, hats, personal items and tactical gear. Daniel Mowery, owner of C and S Airport Services, helped organize the event, alongside former Manchester mayoral candidate Victoria Sullivan and Natalya Gvisza, a Ukrainian whose family is in that country war-torn. “The least we can do is donate to help them because their medical supply resources are limited and the guys who are volunteering to fight this war don’t have the proper equipment,” Mowery said. Items will be brought to Boston or New Jersey on Monday, then air-shipped to arrive in Ukraine within a week. “They try to find places where it’s not so dangerous to bring things to people,” Gvizda said. Meanwhile, coastal artists create pieces to show their support for Ukraine. “We were trying to think of what we could do with our talent and what we normally do. And we said ‘maybe we can donate our art,'” said Debra Woodward, with Seacoast Artist Association. -nine artists from the Exeter Association are creating a wall of sunflowers in honor of Ukraine, whose national flower is the sunflower. The wall of sunflowers will be on display on Wednesday. “We said sunflowers, but some people have said I could just do a photography painting in blue and yellow – the colors of the flag, which is great,” Woodward said. Woodward said all pieces will be sold and all proceeds will go to the nonprofit World’s Central Kitchen, which provides fresh food to Ukrainian families fleeing the country and those left behind. hear about it and they arrive and already start buying things, even if they are on the floor. They’re not even up yet,” Woodward said. The project is close to home for the band, as one of their artists was born and raised in Kyiv. Sunflowers for Ukraine will be on display at the Seacoast Artist Association until April 5.

Twenty-nine artists from the Exeter Association create a wall of sunflowers in honor of Ukraine, whose national flower is the sunflower.

The wall of sunflowers will be on display on Wednesday.

“We had said sunflowers, but some people said I could just do a blue and yellow photography painting — the colors of the flag, which is awesome,” Woodward said.

Woodward said all pieces will be sold and all proceeds will go to the nonprofit World’s Central Kitchen, which provides fresh food to Ukrainian families fleeing the country and those left behind.

“People are hearing about it and they’re coming in and already starting to buy things, even though they’re on the floor. They’re not even on their feet yet,” Woodward said.
