Mielieji,

Šiandien Ukrainos žmonės  kovoja ir už mūsų visų laisvę. Todėl kviečiame susivienyti ir padeti kovojantiems, nukentėjusiems, sužeistiems ir išgyvenantiems karo siaubą . Ukrainos žmonėms yra reikalinga ne tik moralinė, bet ir materialine parama .

 

JAV LB yra atidariusi bendrą sąskaitą kur galima aukoti įvairiais būdais https://javlb.org/ukraina/
Pinigai bus/yra pervedami į Europos šalis kaip Vokietija, per Rotariečius, kad gretų  nupirkti reikalingų prekių ir perduotų Ukrainai.
Tačiau situacija yra tokia, kaip pavyzdžiui Europoje jau trūksta miegmaišių, pirmos pagalbos vaistinėlių, o vaistų Lietuva kol kas iš vis negali teikti dėl kažkokių įstatymų.
Tad čia galime mes padėti. Šiuo metu renkame miegmaišius ir siunčiame į Čikagą, į Pasaulio Lietuvių Centrą iš kur bus siunčiami .
Kviečiame prisidėti prie šios akcijos.Pvz Nebraskos apylinkė per dvi dienas surinko 100 miegmaišių ir nesustoja. Mes, Vakaru pakrantėje, Los Angele galime daugiau.
Nereikia bėgti į krautuves, užsakykite internetu ir siųskite adresu, žr skelbimą.
PS
Amazon dar yra, bet leidžia po 4 vienu metu.
Dalinkimės-jei ne pagalba, bent informacija.

 

Su pagarba,

WE SUPPORT UKRAINE – MARCH 5th

March 05, 2022


Please come to 9 a.m. Mass tomorrow to pray for Ukraine. We need to show our children that, although weapons are necessary to fight evil, our prayers are equally important.

Elizabeth Zakharkiv , our guest from the Las Angeles Ukrainian Art Center, will be visiting at 12 pm. She will speak to our students about the events in war-torn Ukraine.You are most welcome to come and listen to her talk.The Center is preparing a huge planeload of supplies. At 12:40 we will congregate on the church steps with our posters and flags in support of Ukraine. PLEASE, PLEASE make a poster and join us in this symbolic gesture of solidarity.

The Lithuanian-American Community,Inc. is collecting monetary donations to be sent directly where needed. Lithuania is very involved in welcoming those fleeing the war, mostly women and children. They need housing, clothing, food. Students need to get back to school .

PEOPLE HAVE A SHORT ATTENTION SPAN. IT IS UP TO US TO KEEP THE UKRAINIAN TRAGEDY IN THE FOREFRONT ON SOCIAL MEDIA, IN LETTER WRITING CAMPAIGNS , AND IN THE DISSEMINATION OF ACCURATE INFORMATION.

LITHUANIANS KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO LOSE FREEDOM AND TO FLEE YOUR NATIVE LAND.

Looking forward to seeing all of you tomorrow.

Praeitą šeštadienį, pristatėm vaikams šių metų mūsų mokyklos labdaros projektą (plakatas prisegtas).
Rinksime pinigėlius vaikams sergantiems vėžiu Lietuvoje (Rimanto Kaukėno Paramos Fondui). Vaikams buvo išdalintos dėžutes, kurias prašome pripildyti centais (ar popieriniais pinigais ) ir atnešti ŠĮ ŠEŠTADIENĮ (11/13) – ir vėl pripildyti  SEKANTĮ ŠEŠTADIENĮ (11/20)
 
Please see the flyer attached for our charity drive. This year we are collecting money for children who are sick with cancer in Lithuania, and will send over the donation to Kaukenas Foundation. All students received paper collection boxes and we ask you to help fill them! Please bring them full this coming Saturday (11/13). We will empty them out, and ask you to fill it up again and bring them NEXT Saturday (11/20) as well.

KALĖDINĖ EGLUTĖ
 
Prašome pasiūlyti prisidėti prie Eglutės programos pasiruošimo. Kol kas tik pora tėvelių yra atsiliepę, o reikės kaip visada: sudėti kėdes, dekoracijas, suorganizuoti Kalėdų senelį, dovanėles ir t.t. Programa vyks lauke. 
Nebus jūsų, nebus ir Kalėdinės Eglutės …. Jūs labai reikalingi ypač šiais metais! 
 
Please sign up to help set up for Christmas play. Only a couple parents have responded and we really need your help, especially this year. As always, we need to set up chairs, risers, decorations, make gift bags…the program will be set up outside, which involves even more work than having it at the hall. 
 
Ačiū! Ačiū! Ačiū!
