East Palestine church raises $2.7k+ in Walk Relay for Ukraine event
An East Palestine church raised money for Ukraine Saturday morning with a relay walk.
First Church of Christ in East Palestine hosted Walk Relay for Ukraine where groups walked the East Palestine High School Track for four hours accepting $5 donations from spectators with 100% of the proceeds going to one of the church's missions, International Disaster Emergency Services (IDES).
IDES is currently working with Ukraine efforts and helping refugees.
A total of 64 walkers participated in the event and over $2,700 was raised during the event.
Although the event has ended, First Church of Christ would like to keep the fundraiser going for another two weeks with a $3,000 goal.
If you would like to donate to help the church reach that goal, you can send your monetary donation to the First Church of Christ (20, W. Martin St., East Palestine).
