Ukrainian Emergency Relief
Thank you to those who have already made a commitment to help the Ukrainian people, who are enduring devastation and seeing the death of family members, and thousands of fellow Ukrainians.


As you know, it will take many years, even after this savage, merciless and barbaric attack, to care for and reunite families, as well as rebuild their communities.


We have friends and relatives of Buffalo teachers fighting for survival in the Ukraine.


If you haven’t already, please take a minute to contribute to the BTF Ukraine Relief Fund using this link


Thank you on behalf of those your gift will help-them, their families, community and country.


Note: NYSUT has informed us that thus far, in addition to the BTF authorized check of $5,000 from our reserves, $1,435 has been contributed by individual BTF members.


During the spring recess, when you have more time, please take a minute to help those in such desperate need. The contributions are shown as coming from Buffalo, NY teachers.


The donations are tax deductible.
