MORRISON – The Whiteside Forum will host a free presentation, “The Ukraine: How You Can Help,” by guest speakers Paula Schares and Paula Purcell at 2 p.m. Sunday at Odell Public Library, 307 S. Madison St.
Schares and Purcell will discuss the country and its culture, how Ukrainians are coping inside and out of their war-torn country, and what the U.S. is doing to help, followed by a question-and-answer session.
Schares is sharing her experiences with a program called ENGin, a nonprofit organization that pairs English speakers with Ukrainians for free online communication practice and cross-cultural connections.
Purcell will discuss her journey through sponsorship and opportunities to directly support local Ukrainian refugees through advocacy, community outreach, and volunteering.
