About

ABOUT THE UC PARACHUTE

Ukrainian Canadian Parachute is a Toronto-based aid initiative born as a grassroots response to the
arrival of displaced Ukrainians who have fled Ukraine due to war. 


Many of these Ukrainian newcomers arrive with very little clothing or personal belongings. UC
Parachute operates a 'storefront' that provides free necessities including clothing, shoes, hygiene
products, and household items.


Since opening our doors in May 2022, we have served thousands of displaced Ukrainians. By
mobilizing the power of volunteers, and through the generosity of donors, our goal is to provide a ‘soft
landing’ for these new arrivals.


Ukrainian Canadian Parachute is an inspiring example of how the public, private companies, and
volunteers have come together to Stand with Ukraine during this humanitarian crisis.
