Student with donated items

Makayla Mackiewicz, a UGHS sophomore, initiated and led a relief drive for families in Ukraine who need aid. She arranged collection points at area businesses and here at UGHS. Many of the needed items donated included non-perishable food, clothing, hygiene products, blankets, and more.

She collected the items through March 11 and is using monetary donations to ship the items. Makayla has family in Poland in a town near the Ukrainian border. This is  particularly close to home for her, and the motivation for the relief drive. We are proud of Makayla's leadership and service to those in need.
