Shaler Area hosted multiple successful events and initiatives in April to benefit Ukraine
The entire Shaler Area community came together during the month of April to raise funds and collect supplies to benefit Ukraine through multiple events and initiatives.
Throughout the month of April, Shaler Area School District participated in a districtwide service project to collect school and art supplies for students in Ukraine. The service project was led by the Barr family, including juniors Mackenzie and Madison and fourth-grader Lucy. The Barr family belongs to St. George Ukrainian Catholic Church, which is operating the fundraising efforts in coordination with Maidan of Dignity Charitable Foundation, Kyiv, Ukraine. With the support of the entire school district community, the Barr family loaded four SUVs with close to 10,000 school supplies and collected $2,000 to go toward supporting the collection. The supplies collected will benefit a school of 2,000 students that is operating in an underground facility as the war rages around the country. 
Shaler Area Middle School students and staff also presented an “Evening of Music to Benefit Ukraine” in recognition of the global impact of the events in Ukraine and with a desire to show their support. All proceeds from this event benefited #PghUnitedForUkraine, the local campaign of the United Way Worldwide’s #UnitedForUkraine campaign. Students participated in homeroom collections and a pajama day to raise additional funds. In total, the school donated more than $2,300 to the United Way campaign.
