The outpouring of compassion from our friends, family members, and customer base has been overwhelming when it comes to inquiring about all of our employees that join us each season from Ukraine. As many of you know, we have been in contact with each of them on a regular basis.
This organization is near and dear to the hearts of many Ukrainians on our team. While no one supports the act of war, they want to ensure that the ones keeping them safe will have the necessary resources. This organization aims to keep their servicemen and women of the Armed Forces of Ukraine as safe as possible.
Ukrainians are proud of their freedom and want to ensure that their Armed Forces have necessary equipment, training, and medical care.

At Untiedt’s, we are committed to helping those who face hunger. Throughout our growing season, we make regular contributions to local food shelves to ensure that members of our community have access to fresh and local produce. A donation to World Central Kitchen will help to feed not only refugees fleeing Ukraine, but also those who have not been able to leave the country.

As for life in Ukraine, it is difficult, but the pride for their country is unwavering. While many of our employees live in west-central Ukraine where there hasn’t been as much conflict, we do have a few employees who are living in cities that have been brutally attacked. We continue to pray for all of their safety and will assist in any way that we can.
