Hats off to the Ladies Guild at St. Julie’s Church in Dartmouth today. The group is selling lawn signs to support the people of Ukraine who are currently under attack from Russian military forces.
The lawn signs include the inscription “Pray for Peace” and sell for $15 each.
We have all seen the devastating images of Ukraine on television, of cities reduced to rubble by rocket attacks, the slaughter of civilians and lines of refugees fleeing their homes. Marianne Mueller, president of the Ladies Guild, said it was these images that inspired her and other guild members to do something to help.
“There are people locally who need help,” Mueller said. “But it has nothing to do with people suffering in Ukraine.”
Mueller said his group partners with Aid to the Church in Need, an organization established in 1947 to help refugees after World War II. She said Aid to the Church in Need is committed to directing 100% of all donations to humanitarian aid for refugees from Ukraine.
Blue Eagle Printing makes the lawn signs, which were sold this weekend at St. Julie’s Parish Hall, but Mueller said the sale of the signs won’t stop there. If you are interested in purchasing a lawn sign or multiple signs, you can contact Mueller via email at [email protected] to order what you need.
