Holladay and Millcreek to host Rally Ukraine
HOLLADAY, Utah (ABC4) – On March 26 from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m., the cities of Holladay and Millcreek are coming together to hold a community rally in support of Ukrainian families in crisis at Holladay City Park located at 4580 South 2300 East, Holladay.
The upcoming rally will feature donation opportunities that can also be done online, live music by Salt Lake City’s Winterwood, speeches from community leaders, and offerings such as ribbons of support that can be used to decorate homes in sign of support for the Ukrainian people. .
“The people of Ukraine need our support, and many people in Holladay and Millcreek want to lend a hand,” said Holladay Mayor Rob Dahle. “Our hope is to bridge this gap by bringing the community together, providing a way for people to provide assistance directly, and sending a message of encouragement and love to families facing unimaginable circumstances.”
The cities partnered with the International Rescue Committee (IRC) to host the event. The IRC is a non-profit organization whose mission is to help people affected by humanitarian crises. IRC officials have been working on the ground in Poland to help Ukrainian refugees who have fled their homes.
“We are grateful that the International Rescue Committee is joining us at this event. We appreciate the valuable programs and the help they provide to our community and consider them a trusted partner in providing direct support to the people of Ukraine. It is important for us to pay it forward and be there for Ukrainians when they need it most,” commented Mayor Jeff Silvestrini of Millcreek.
