Letter: A heartfelt thank you to NOTL residents for helping Ukraine

Dear editor: 

I want to say thank you to everyone. Ukraine has been helped because of you.

Because reporter Evan Saunders and The Lake Report took the time to publish the article, “United by war, they carry on fathers' legacy” on March 23, you read the article and you donated. You helped Ukraine.

Because the Facebook group Buy Nothing Niagara-on-the-Lake administrators – Audrey Martens Pellett, Julia Buxton-Cox and Kyra Simone – allowed me to make posts asking for donations for Ukraine, you read these posts. You donated supplies that were needed.

You helped Ukraine.

Know that when your donations were brought to church, I was so proud to say that they were from my municipality, Niagara-on-the-Lake.

In a blink of an eye, this town is ready to help and for that I am truly grateful.

To date, our church has sent over 2,000 boxes of supplies to Ukraine and has raised over $150,000 in donations because of people like you.

From the bottom of our hearts, St. John the Theologian Ukrainian Catholic Church thanks you. Lida Kowal Curtis thanks you. I thank you. The people of Ukraine thank you.

If you would like to make a monetary donation, please visit the church’s website at

Your donation will go toward the cost of shipping or for purchasing much-needed military and medical supplies.
