Wine To Water non-profit for Ukraine

posted in: Outreach | 0

Wine to Water fundraiserWine To Water is a non-profit, working in Ukraine and neighboring countries to distribute water filters to families displaced and under attack in this crisis. Their networks are with local ground leaders devoted to helping in this humanitarian crisis and we wish support their courage. ⁠⁠

With infrastructure and supply chains disrupted in the region, people depend on surface water from rivers, rain or untreated sources. Filters give families and shelters a way to prevent waterborne illnesses common in war and refugee camps. The filters also avoid dependencies on single use plastics which add to the environmental disaster created by a global crisis. ⁠⁠

St. Thomas’s will be supporting this effort. On Maundy Thursday, our altar of repose will be decorated with succulents. Since succulents can survive harsh conditions such as extreme temperatures and water scarcity, they are associated with resilience and survival. Starting on Good Friday, these plants, associated with everlasting love, endurance and loyalty, will be available for a donation. ⁠⁠

You are welcome to contact the office ( for information about taking home some these plants. In the meantime, you can check out Read the inspiring story of an ordinary bartender turned humanitarian. And, there is cute merch…and wine for sale!
