Humanitarian Drive Held in Partnership
with New York Medical College
Standing in solidarity with the innocent people who are suffering in Ukraine, Westchester County Government joined with New York Medical College to host a humanitarian drive.
“The evil being done on the other side of the world to families in Ukraine leaves us all in shock and in anguish. We cannot accept the massacre that is leaving villages destroyed, and families torn apart as reality. I want to commend all the Westchester County employees who donated to our humanitarian drive, to help those in Ukraine who have lost so much,” County Executive Latimer said.
Items that were collected included: Unused medical supplies, first aid kits, bandages, gauze and antiseptics; Unused sanitation products for COVID-19 (face masks, latex gloves); Sealed boxes of baby supplies (powder formula, diapers, wipes) and maternity supplies; Sealed boxes of feminine hygiene products; Toiletries and other accessories; Cold weather clothing; and sealed non-perishable foods.
Westchester County’s Department of Public Works transported all items to New York Medical College, where they were shipped directly to Ukraine.
