[ARCHIVED] Beaufort to close its Ukraine relief fund campaign at end of July

Sea Island Quilters plus Bill and MitchBEAUFORT, S.C. (July 25, 2022) –  The City of Beaufort will end its Pride of Place Ukraine relief drive on July 31.

The City has been raising money to help its partner city Ostroh, a historic city in western Ukraine that has served refugees fleeing from other parts of the country under attack by Russia.

Mayor Stephen Murray kicked off this campaign in March by reaching out to the mayor of Ostroh, Yurii Yahodka, and establishing a relationship with the mayor. Donors from the City of Beaufort – and across the country – have responded generously. 

Thibault Gallery raised funds by selling glass pins resembling the Ukrainian national flag. The Sea Island Quilters raised funds by holding a raffle for a beautiful blue and yellow quilt called “Hearts for Ukraine.” The Habersham Community Garden Club also made a donation.

The total amount of funds raised will be announced next week. The City of Beaufort thanks everyone who donated money, or bought a pin or raffle ticket to support the City of Ostroh.

Any last-minute donations can be made through July 31 through the Pride of Place link here: http://www.cityofbeaufort.org/270/Beaufort-Pride-of-Place.
