Boyertown Church Hosts Ukraine Fund-Raiser Saturday

BOYERTOWN PA – “Love Thy Neighbor,” a Saturday (March 26, 2022) fund-raising event for Ukraine, is being hosted by St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church from 5-7 p.m. at the General Carl Spaatz Museum, 28 Warwick St. Tickets remain available but are going fast, organizers say, and can be purchased at the door.

A $20 ticket includes a guided tour or the new museum, hors d’oeuvres, and a presentation that tells the story of Bohodukiv, Boyertown’s former sister city in Ukraine. “We’re also asking for donations,” said church communications coordinator Shannon Omlor said. St. John’s has pledged to match up to $5,000 in donations offered.

All money will be forwarded to the Lutheran World Federation, which will ensure it benefits Ukranians in need.

“There are no administrative overhead costs, everything goes directly to the needs of people,” according to church pastor the Rev. Bob Machamer.
