Six wooden crates full of donated supplies left St. Johnsbury Tuesday afternoon bound for Ukraine

Six wooden crates full of donated supplies left St. Johnsbury Tuesday afternoon bound for Ukraine, concluding a local effort launched by a West Burke volunteer firefighter to support the war-torn country. Taylor Peyton, who has been with the West Burke department for about a year, and Steve Parker, assistant chief at the West Burke department, helped load the crates onto a tractor-trailer headed for New Jersey where they will be received by a Ukrainian company responsible for getting the supplies to Ukraine. On each of the crates, Peyton wrote “Slava Ukraini,” which means “Glory to Ukraine.” The crates, what’s in them, where they were housed and how they got to New Jersey is all about local generosity that grew from Peyton’s desire to do something in regard to the Russian attack on Ukraine.
