It’s hard to watch the news out of Ukraine and not want to do something to help. A local Ukrainian owned and operated coffee shop, Chant’el Café in Folsom, is now holding a fundraiser to get refugees the supplies they need. Owner Nina Getman told KCRA News “We’re trying to help these people with water, with bread, with all the stuff, medical supplies, whatever they need,”
If you’d like to help, visit the Chant’el Café at 1750 Prairie City Road, Unit 150, Folsom, California; or donate through Ms. Getman’s church’s GoFundMe.

Here’s the story that KCRA did on the Chant’el Café and this effort:
