The Reading Royals are announcing their solidarity with the people of Ukraine during this difficult time.
The Royals, in partnership with the Reading Royals Booster Club, will be selling specialty pucks that resemble the Ukrainian flag and colors to show support for those who are being displaced due to the invasion by Russian troops.
50% of the proceeds from these puck sales will be donated to the Ukraine War Refugee Aid Fund of the Bethany Slavic Church in Ephrata, Pa.
The Bethany Slavic Church is coordinating and funding the effort to help provide evacuation, temporary housing, and accommodations in Poland, Romania, and other nations to as many refugees as possible. The church members comprise former refugees hoping to pay forward the kindness they received. Their motto is: “Once this community gave us refuge, today this is our calling.”
