Providing Emergency Aid for Ukrainians in Crisis:

Medical and Humanitarian  


Pack the Plane to Ukraine is a Not for Profit organized in response to the war in Ukraine.  During this time of crisis, Ukraine is struggling with resources and access to basic supplies, both medical and personal. Pack the Plane to Ukraine has been collecting, purchasing, and shipping humanitarian goods and medical supplies to cities in Ukraine. Please help us continue the flow of desperately needed items to hospitals and to the large population of internally displaced refugees. Donations go directly to the purchasing of supplies and to the shipping costs related to the generous community and organizational donations. Pack the Plane is a 501(c)3 registered charity.
