If there's anything that we have learned in the past two years, it's how we are all equal. We have watched our local businesses close while others begin a new journey. As a community, we came together to make sure that one another was getting by and doing what we could to show our support.

More than ever, that feeling of being there for our fellow citizens is important. Even though we may not be able to give a hands-on experience of our efforts, we can still do what we can from afar.

Here's how to help Ukraine in the Hudson Valley.

Donuts in support of Ukraine is a way that a local candy shop is showing that they care. For each 2 dozen donuts that they sell, they can pay for one night in an AirBnb in Poland with efforts to help refugees find shelter. If you would like to order a dozen or more donuts, reach out to them on social media and or by phone.
