Friday night, hundreds of Alexandrians gathered on the rooftop deck of ALX Community at The Atrium — in a new space called Above ALX — and raised more than $35,000 for Ukrainian refugees.
Called A Night for Ukraine, the event is hosted by ALX Community in partnership with Love in ALX, The Georgian Association in the US and Loan Signing Agent.
Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine began on Feb. 24, millions of people have fled to Poland and other surrounding countries. The humanitarian crisis has prompted needs for relief such as food, water, transportation and shelter.
Alexandria coworking space ALX Community is hosting a fundraising event Friday, March 25 to raise donations for nonprofits assisting Ukrainian refugees.
