Waterloo Region Grassroots Response to the Ukrainian Crisis was formed out of the desire to help. We’ve heard from hundreds of people that you have many times to donate: clothing, furniture, and toys. While Waterloo Region Grassroots to the Ukrainian Crisis isn’t accepting large amounts of donations we are accepting specific items requested by families. If you have items you would like to donate and you are unable to hold onto the items please donate these items to local thrift stores instead of sending them to the landfill.
