Dartmouth Group Selling Lawn Signs in Support of Ukraine [TOWNSQUARE SUNDAY]
A tip of the hat today to the Ladies Guild at St. Julie's Church in Dartmouth. The group is in the midst of selling lawn signs to support of the people of Ukraine, currently under attack by military forces from Russia.
The lawn signs include the inscription "Pray for Peace," and are selling for $15 each.
We have all seen the devastating images of Ukraine on television, cities turned to rubble by rocket attacks, the slaughter of civilians, and lines of refugees leaving their homes. Marianne Mueller, President of the Ladies Guild, said it was those images that prompted her and other members of the guild to do something to help.
"There are people locally who need help," Mueller said. "But it pales in comparison to the people suffering in Ukraine."
Mueller said her group is partnering with Aid to the Church in Need, an organization formed in 1947 to aid refugees following World War II. She said Aid to the Church in Need is committed to directing 100 percent of all donations to providing humanitarian relief to refugees of Ukraine.
Blue Eagle Printing is making the lawn signs, which were sold this weekend at St. Julie's Church Hall, but Mueller said the sale of the signs won't stop there. If you are interested in purchasing a lawn sign or several signs, you can contact Mueller by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org to order what you need.
