SEQUIM — Support for Ukrainian refugees continues at three churches this summer, with volunteers most recently compiling 88 kits with housewares at Dungeness Valley Lutheran Church.

Church staff said volunteers built the kits on July 26 with ongoing donations started at a kickoff collection drive on June 28.

Members of Dungeness Valley Lutheran Church, St. Luke’s Episcopal Church and Trinity United Methodist Church started the effort for Ukrainian refugees in Washington state displaced by the Russian invasion.

All three churches accept monetary and donations of housewares for the refugees through Tuesday next week, with the last assembly day set for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 16, at St. Luke’s. Volunteers are welcome.

Household items and monetary donations can be dropped off at:

• Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 S. Blake Ave., 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday; 360-683-5367.

T-shirts with the Ukraine flag’s colors and “Never give up” are available for $20 at Dungeness Valley Lutheran Church from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday with all proceeds going to the refugees.

All donations will be delivered later this month, organizers said.
