How Metro Detroit Businesses Can and Have Helped Ukraine

Many Metro Detroit businesses and organizations have stepped up to initiate and contribute to relief efforts in response to the escalating crisis in Ukraine. Chamber members throughout the region have announced significant donations to support relief efforts.

While an influx of fundraisers, donation drives, and events are already underway, there are still ways local businesses can pitch in their support.

Ways to Help

The Ukrainian-American Crisis Response Committee of Michigan was created recently to help Ukraine in the face of the current crisis. The Crisis Response Committee is a grassroots, informal association of organizations and individuals, formed in order to respond to the escalating crisis facing Ukraine. The Committee is made up of Ukrainian-Americans who care deeply about U.S. interests in the region, which include a commitment to Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

The Committee offers several ways to show support to Ukraine. Learn more and donate funds,
donate supplies, and/or volunteer.


Another way you can support is through local metro Detroit business, the Ukrainian Cultural Center. The Ukrainian Cultural Center is asking for items such as baby diapers, wipes, non-perishable foods, blankets, and toiletries. Any items should be dropped off at 13400 Girardin Street in Hamtramck.

For any questions, call the Ukrainian Cultural Center at 313-920-8345.


Through the UCare Humanitarian Aid Drive, volunteers will collect humanitarian aid items from 1-7 p.m. March 21-26, at St. Mary’s Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral at 21931 Evergreen Road in Southfield. UCare is seeking new or gently used clothing, diapers of all sizes, baby formula, bottles, hygiene items, shoes, toys, and first aid supplies.
