The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 124 will be donating $2 from every meal sold at its July 21 fish fry to the Canada-Ukraine Foundation.

The organization is dedicated to arranging humanitarian assistance for Ukraine by either giving direct aid to the country or helping Ukrainians who have been displaced and come to Canada.

The branch previously raised $250 for the foundation at a barbecue in June.

“There are a lot of people in dire situations,” said Legion member Alex Luhowy, “so this is one way we can help them through it.”

The fish fry happens on Thursday nights at the branch, 410 King St., from 4 to 7 p.m. The event typically attracts 150 to 200 people.

Down the road, Branch 124 will be continuing to show its solidarity with Ukraine through projects like this, said Luhowy.
