SHARON – For Garron Birdsall, Russia’s Ukraine invasion hits close to home for Garron Birdsall — his brother-in-law is trying to survive inside the ravaged nation.
“His whole family is over there,’’ Birdsall said.
As chef at Thyme In Your Kitchen in downtown Sharon, Birdsall is raising funds for desperate Ukrainians. Pat Evans, owner of the kitchen supply store, donated 100% of the store’s sales this week, through today, for the cause.
The store is open today until 5 p.m. and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. The response has been great.
“Its been huge,’’ Evans said of the fundraiser. “There’s so many people who know about this story.’’
Birdsall said his brother-in-law has continually been on the move to avoid Russian attacks.
“At one point he was staying in a cabin up in the mountains,’’ he said.
The local response for the fundraiser has been heartening, Birdsall added.
“Its really nice to see new faces in the shop,’’ he said.

All of the money is being turned over to St. John’s Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Sharon. The church will forward donations to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA, its U.S. parent organization, said Father Steve Repa, the Sharon church’s pastor.
So far, $18,000 in donations have poured in from the community, Repa added.
“We have people coming all the time with checks wanting to donate,’’ he said. “And as a church we’ve also taken our own money for donations.’’
On Friday over a dozen church members worked on cooking pirogis, which are sold to the public with the funds earmarked for the local church.

John Tyliszczak was among the volunteers. The Herald featured the Masury resident last month in a story about his relatives in Ukraine.
Tyliszczak said he continues communicating with family members through the internet. So far their community hasn’t been attacked. But a new normal has emerged since the invasion.
“They said things have remained the same – they continue hearing bombs and shooting in the distance,’’ he said.
TO DONATE toward Ukrainian relief efforts, send a check payable to: St. John’s Ukrainian Orthodox Church, 389 Clark St., Sharon, Pa., 16146
