Campaign for Families Fleeing the War in Ukraine

I’m pleased and honoured to be part of the campaign cabinet for the initiative to raise funds for Ukrainian families relocating to the Greater Moncton and Southeastern NB area after fleeing the Russian invasion of their country. I’m actively raising funds on behalf of this campaign and would appreciate any and all support. Tax receipts are provided.
