Babylon businesses raise $50K for Ukraine refugees
The Town of Babylon Industrial Development Agency recently held a fundraising auction at the Belfast Gastro Pub in Lindenhurst to support Ukraine’s refugees.
The event was the culmination of a two-month fundraising effort by the IDA and the Babylon business community, which has so far raised more than $50,400.
The money will be presented to the Holy Family Ukrainian Catholic Church in Lindenhurst, which will distribute it to refugee assistance groups in Poland and other neighboring countries where an estimated 5.4 million Ukrainians are now living.
“As the IDA, our relationships in the town are with the business community,” said Babylon IDA CEO Tom Dolan. “Time and time again we call on our local businesses to aid our fundraising efforts, and those calls are always answered with full support. The business community deserves a round of applause for their efforts in support of such a worthy cause.”
