Fort Worth Presbyterian supports a number of missionaries through MTW, the global missions-sending agency of the Presbyterian Church in America. One of those is Doug Shepherd in L’viv, Ukraine. In a recent update, Doug shared this: “Power outages, missile strikes and disrupted routines continue to be daily realities. Russia continues to strike power stations, thermal heating stations and civilians as they push toward their genocidal goals. God has been gracious, and the church continues to grow and serve in these dark times.”

The MTW L’viv team is receiving aid in connection with the Evangelical Presbyterian Church of Ukraine (EPCU) and sending it to the neediest communities across war-torn Ukraine. The primary means by which they have received aid is the Crates for Ukraine program, and the warehouse is now in need of restocking. The winter initiative is streamlined, allowing churches to pack crates that are delivered to a warehouse in Dallas or Chattanooga, palletized, and shipped to L’viv.

Trinity Presbyterian in Fort Worth has committed to pack four crates with Basic Care items, and has offered FWPC the opportunity to participate. There are three ways you can get involved:

1. Give a monetary donation that will be used to purchase and fill crates packed by Trinity. Donations are needed no later than Sunday, February 26.


2. View the supply list below, purchase your items, and bring them to the Crates for Ukraine box in the fellowship hall by Sunday, February 26. Due to the regulations of the shipping partner, it is crucial that only items on the list are packed in the crates. You will find online links for each item that help you understand its specifications. It is not necessary to purchase via that link or even that brand (unless otherwise noted), but please be certain to purchase an equivalent item. If you wish to purchase a “one per crate” item, please check with Ruth Ann Francis first.
