Ukraine Support

Since the onset of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Rotary Clubs have partnered with the Ukrainian Medical Association of North America (UMANA) and Friends of Be an Angel in the effort to deliver urgently needed medical supplies to Ukraine. In December, the attention turned to delivering generators to provide power and warmth to Ukrainian humanitarian facilities this winter. Now the focus turns back to getting medical supplies to Ukraine.



Medical Supply Pack & Sort Event – Saturday, June 10th 


On Saturday, June 10th we will once again gather to sort and pack donated medical supplies so that they may be sent to Ukraine.  There will be three shifts. While all volunteers 16 years of age and older are welcome and appreciated throughout the day, the first shift will require a lot of volunteers who are medical professionals to identify and sort the supplies. The last shift will be devoted to wrap up and clean up in the warehouse –

• 8 am – 12 pm
• 11 am – 3 pm
• 2 – 5 pm (Clean Up Crew)


You are welcome to recruit additional medical volunteers — we simply ask that all volunteers sign up.


Sign Up Here to Volunteer on June 10th 




Generator Project Update

This winter Friends of Be an Angel arranged to purchase over 1700 generators.  210 of those generators were purchased with funds raised by Rotary Clubs across Wisconsin, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and beyond.  Read more here about the project and distribution of the generators in this Impact Report and in this press release about the project.

The generators were gratefully received, as shown  in this video from a grateful teacher.

For this effort, Rotary Clubs are continuing their partnership with Friends of Be an Angel. Friends of Be an Angel has been an essential and trusted partner in Rotary/UMANA efforts to send medical supplies from Milwaukee/Chicago and distribute them to the frontline in Ukraine. To ensure transparency that the generators reach their intended destination, they provide impact reports and photo/video documentation of the deliveries
