Vols for Ukraine (VFU) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that provides temporary emergency assistance, including food, shelter, transportation, medical care, and language services to Ukrainian refugees living in or moving to Tennessee. VFU gathers and distributes gifts, charitable contributions, and bequests in a variety of forms to help those refugees who lack the resources to adequately provide for themselves and their families.

Please help us to help these freedom-loving people as they come to terms with the devastation of their homeland. Consider donating to VolsforUkraine. Your contribution will provide direct help to Ukrainian refugee families in Tennessee.
Thank you!
