Logistics Plus and Red Letter Hospitality teamed up to raise more than $10,000 to aid the people in Ukraine. The funds were raised as a result of Ukraine Week, a week-long celebration of Ukrainian food and culture held from August 8th through August 14th at three local restaurants in the Erie area. The money raised will help with medical supplies, rehoming refugees in Erie, and feeding those in need in Ukraine.
Logistics Plus Chief Operations Officer (and Ukrainian native) Yuriy Ostapyak said, “I’m very proud to be a part of this community. I’m very proud that the community has kind of rallied behind Ukraine, and as I mentioned before, this support matters. It’s not just about the money. It matters for people in Ukraine to know that they are supported, that people all the way across the ocean are with them trying to help.”
