A spokesperson for the St. Andrews Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral and Humanitarian Center spoke at the Thurmont Lions Club meeting in February. St. Andrews volunteer, Olena “Len” Poole, gave the presentation and explained the need for personal items, clothing, and financial donations on the ground in Ukraine. Len’s brothers are fighting the front lines there, and other family members are seeking shelter in areas that are being bombed. With new information in the headlines daily about Ukraine, it is interesting to hear real reports about the conditions there. Len is from Ukraine but lives in the D.C. Metro area with her husband. Len is a Team Developer for Zoom when she’s not volunteering for this cause.
