TIMONIUM, Md. (WJZ) – Local businesses across the Baltimore area are working to help Ukrainians.
Floral Fetes in Timonium has raised more than $40,000 for those affected by the war by selling “Blooms for Ukraine” bouquets and donating through Venmo.
“It’s really, really, really powerful that we don’t plan on it,” said Vitoria Clausen, the store’s owner.
Clausen, who was born in Ukraine and still has friends and family there, has sent some money back to the country. She told WJZ that it was used to purchase field ambulances to evacuate the disabled and support refugee facilities that provided clothing and food for hundreds of people.
“100% of the proceeds will go to Ukrainian refugees with logistical support,” Clausen said.
Bouquets start at $30 and can be purchased online by visiting Their website or visit the store. Home delivery is also available.
Charm City Chocolate in Hampden is helping Ukraine by selling sunflower-themed boxes of chocolates. Sunflower is the national flower of Ukraine. The business is supporting a nonprofit that is sending medical aid to people in need there.
Todd Zimmerman, co-owner of the business.
Boxes can be purchased Online or at the store. Pick up and delivery available.
