In response to the humanitarian crisis in Eastern Europe, Hubbard Radio’s KTMY-FM in Minneapolis-St. Paul is partnering with Minnesota-based Alight to raise money that will directly aid refugee care in Poland. The fundraiser, “myTalkers for Ukraine,” which kicked-off Monday, March 7, has already raised $105,000 and will continue through this week.

Alight, formerly known as American Refugee Committee, has a team on the ground at the Ukrainian border in Poland, assisting refugees with relief items and medical supplies for people fleeing Ukraine. They are providing baby food, diapers, sanitary items, blankets and phone chargers so people can stay connected with loved ones. Alight is offering safe transport for families once inside Poland and secure shelter in Poland. Plus, support for host communities who’ve been openly welcoming Ukranians.
