I am a scholar at Haas Hall Academy in Springdale. As I am sure you know, war has taken hold in the country of Ukraine. There have been hundreds of casualties and many cities have been bombed, including schools and hospitals. The attack on citizens and the country’s infrastructure has created a humanitarian crisis. More than half a million women, children, and elderly are fleeing to nearby countries, many are severely injured or wounded.
I have family and friends there myself and everyday I await their calls to see if they are still alive. People are in desperate need of the most basic necessities. We at Haas Hall can show a unified stance against this attack by saving lives in one of the simplest ways, a fundraiser.
My mother, Yuliana Kelley, manages Central Park Angels (501(c)(3)). Here is the link to their website- https://youaretheangel.org/
Originally they had focused on bringing education and basic human needs to the village of Belle Anse in Haiti, with outstanding success. Now, 100% of all proceeds go to assisting the people fleeing the war torn country of Ukraine.
On March 15th, the Scholar Councils of all 4 Haas Hall campuses will sponsor a Light Blue/Gold day where scholars can wear school appropriate shirts in either Light Blue or Yellow, the colors of the Ukrainian flag, to show support for the refugees of the country. Each scholar that will participate will pay $3 to wear the item as a donation to the cause, however, additional donations will gladly be accepted. Any additional checks sent via Haas Hall Academy should be made out to “You Are The Angel”.
Here is more information for those that prefer alternative methods of monetary donations. Any amount would be most helpful and is needed.

In addition, if your place of worship or other agencies would like to participate, I can provide a list of items that you may donate. You would need to work with Central Park Angels on how to get these items overseas. Please do not bring these items to Haas Hall sites.

Thank you in advance for your kindness in helping these refugees.
