Ukraine Donation

Dear ZAGBA community,

This is an update on the donated items for Ukraine from Laila Dantas.


The original location for receiving donated items for Ukraine has reached capacity. Instead I will be dropping items off to a dental practice in Franklin run by a Ukrainian dentist to distribute to Ukrainian relief organizations. Items for donation are similar to previously requested. I have pasted the information below in case you can’t make it to the Navroz event and would like to donate directly to the practice. 

Mint Dental 150 Emmons St, Franklin, MA 02038
