SiteKick is honored to share this important call for hope and action to help the Ukrainian people in this time of crisis. The Give Back Kids, in partnership with St. Katherine Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Arden Hills, Minnesota and SiteKick (especially the Shishkin and Wolfe Families), call upon our friends, family and concerned citizens to open their hearts to help the people of Ukraine and all those displaced from their homes during this crisis.
We urge everyone to help gather the necessities that will bring some comfort and ease the lives of the Ukrainian refugees most affected by the conflict in their homeland. Please read the message below from Rene Hanssen & Lindsay Melander of the Give Back Kids for more information on how you can help!
