San Diego nonprofit Slavic.org organized a Christmas event for Ukrainian refugees, and organizers anticipated about 300 refugees would attend the gathering.
SAN DIEGO (KGTV) – Hundreds of Ukrainian refugees and community members gathered in the spirit of Christmas at the City View Church in the Mission Valley area to have sense of community.
Now that it’s time for the Christmas season, Krystsina Shchelkunova, who organized the event, hoped to bring them some holiday joy in a time where it might hard to find some.
“Tonight, is going to be the first Christmas for the Ukrainian families who arrived recently to San Diego. So, we would like to welcome them,” Shchelkunova said Tuesday.
Shchelkunova told ABC 10News she was expecting about 300 Ukrainian refugees to attend on Tuesday night.
