As the war in Ukraine continues and the resulting humanitarian crisis worsens each day, the TDSB is launching the tdsbCARES Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis Appeal to support the Canadian Red Cross and UNICEF in their ongoing efforts to provide life-saving humanitarian assistance to those impacted.
Since the start of the conflict, a number of schools across the TDSB have been holding fundraisers and collecting donations in support of the ongoing relief efforts in Ukraine. The launch of tdsbCARES Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis Appeal complements these school initiatives and streamlines the process for schools and central departments to make new or additional donations.
An estimated four million people have fled Ukraine since the start of the conflict, while an estimated 18 million people inside Ukraine are affected.
Donations to the Canadian Red Cross will enable the organization to respond to the humanitarian needs in Ukraine and surrounding countries, which includes immediate and ongoing relief efforts.
UNICEF is working with partners to reach vulnerable children and families with essential services – including health, education, protection, water and sanitation – as well as life-saving supplies.
The tdsbCARES Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis Appeal will run until May 31, 2022. Tax receipts will be issued by the Canadian Red Cross (for all donations of $5 or more) and UNICEF (for all donations of $10 or more).
