Send Aid To Ukraine Refugees

Send Aid To Ukraine & Bring Your Donations to Eco-Vape Drop Off Points

Eco-Vape is converting some of its retail stores into the drop off points for people to donate aid for Ukrainian refugees and families displaced by the war. We’re collaborating with other companies to combine our resources to make it as easy as possible to send aid to the Ukrainian people.

We have already prepared our Beeston store for people to drop off donations. If you’re unsure what to donate, we have included a list of suitable items for donation, which you can find further down in this article.

You can also visit our official Aid For Ukraine Nottingham Facebook page to find more information and receive updates about new drop off points and what to donate.

Our Four Goals:

Our primary aim is to provide support to Ukrainian refugees and displaced families, suffering from the tragic effects of the war in Ukraine. In order to do this, we have set four key goals in order to make helping the Ukrainian people as efficient as possible. Our four goals are;

  • Recruit volunteers (store supervisors, supply couriers & social influencers).
  • Collect supplies in aid stores to be sent to Ukraine.
  • Help people to offer a home to refugees.
  • Make it simple to donate financially.

How Can I Send Aid To Ukraine?

If you’re looking to send aid to Ukraine, you can drop it off or send it to any of our converted UK based retail stores (including Beeston). These stores have been converted into storage centres for people to bring donated items to be sent to Ukraine, which we then work with other companies to send across Europe to help support Ukrainian refugees.

If you’re looking to donate financially, please scan the QR further down this article, which will take you to the official DEC (Disasters Emergency Committee) donation page.

Which Eco-Vape Stores Should I Drop Off Donations To?

Eco-Vape is converting some of its stores into aid hubs and drop off points for people to bring donations. The stores will be used to check, process and organise donations so we can then send aid to Ukraine.

We have already prepared our old Beeston store into an aid drop off point, where you can bring donations for the Ukrainian people and we will organise them to be sent to Ukraine. You can find the store at the following address;

Eco-Vape Beeston Store: 68 High Road, Beeston, Nottingham, NG9 2JQ

We are working towards setting up more stores across the UK as a donation drop off points. We will update this page regularly when new stores are ready.

Which other companies are involved?
