FAIR LAWN, NJ — U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) joined the locally-organized “Fair Lawn Help Ukraine” drive-thru donation drop-off site, helping get the people of Ukraine critical goods they need during Russia’s horrifying invasion. The event successfully filled dozens of boxes with everything from jackets, boots, and gloves, to shampoo, diapers, and sleeping bags. 

The event was organized by Fair Lawn Councilwoman Gail Rottenstrich and members of the community, working with the Ukrainian Orthodox Holy Ascension Cathedral. 

“We’re coming together and displaying one of our key Jersey Values: pulling together in times of crisis and helping those in need,” said Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5). “For every Ukrainian stuck amid Russia’s harrowing invasion, know that our Jersey community stands with you always.”
