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.

We have received numerous phone calls and emails asking how you could support our employees. While we are not able to collect funds directly for the employees, we have reached out to ask how they would like our friends and customer base to support their home country. Through back-and-forth communication, two organizations have been selected.

Come Back Alive

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.

World Central Kitchen

World Central Kitchen

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.

Untiedt's Supports Our Ukrainian Staff

To show our continued support, Untiedt’s has made contributions to both organizations on behalf of our employees. We continue to hope and pray that they are safe, and that peace will prevail sooner rather than later.
We continue to work to bring as any of our Ukrainian female employees to our farm as possible. Three former employees have made it to the Czech Republic and hope to have their work visas granted the week of March 21st. We have additional visas available for more individuals to come in April and will continue working to assist them in applying and receiving their visas.

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.

As always, thank you for the continued support for our friends in Ukraine.
