Supporting Uzhhorod Refugee Fund

Supporting Ukraine Refugees in Uzhhorod

Multiple organizations and individuals have stepped up to support Ukraine Refugees. Here are several ways you can support.

Support our Youth who are Supporting Ukrainians! Purchase a poster or note card created by two local sisters, 16-year-old Allessandra Bakker and 13-year-old Isabella Bakker, who wanted to do something to help the refugee situation in Ukraine.  They have created beautiful posters and note cards. Local artist, Sharon Rackham-King donated paper and supplies and printed the posters and note cards, free of charge with all proceeds going to the Uzhhorod refugee Fund. The Prints (8×10) are $30 and 4 notecards of both scenes are $25. Here is a link to an order form for you to use to purchase either the prints, notecards or both. Link: https://sistercities.corvallis.or.us/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/Bakker-Mail-Order.pdf   They are also available to purchase at Visit Corvallis at 113 SW 3rd  St, Suite 101, or at the Corvallis Museum, 411 NW 2nd Street. Thank you, Sharon, Allessandra, and Isabella.
