Despite the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, preparations for this year’s 2020 “Let’s fill their hearts with warmth” campaign are underway uniting CYMivci all around the world to collect gifts as well as funds for their peers in Ukraine, whose fathers are participants of the cruel war brought upon by the Russian aggression taking place in the Eastern regions of Ukraine as well as internally displaced children.
Since the inception of the “Let’s fill their hearts with warmth” campaign six years ago, CYM members and benefactors have collected and donated over 12,600 gifts to Ukraine for the staggering amount of $320,000 USD.
We are calling once again on our members from all branches: Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Etobicoke, Mississauga, Hamilton, St. Catharines as well as our large family of supporters to enthusiastically participate and collect gifts or funds to purchase gifts – clothes, school supplies, books, toys and sweets.
Contrary to year’s prior this year’s campaign and distribution of gifts will not take place on the eve of Saint Nicholas Day (19 December) but instead during the entire Christmas period (25 December – January 19).
For more detailed information please download the National Executive’s Information circular 17/2020 from 21 September 2020.
We will be accepting donations until the end of November!
