Parishes of the UOC of the USA Participate in Coats and Shoes Drive for Orphans
With the Blessing of the hierarchs of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA, the faithful of our Church embarked this fall on a nationwide warm clothes drive for needy children in Ukraine.
Protection of the Birth-Giver of God Cathedral in Southfield, Michigan was one of the centers of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church in the USA collecting, receiving and packaging coats and shoes. The clothing drive started slowly in the parish just outside Detroit, but, once the large box with the poster appeared in the parish hall, the interest grew.
