Jared Malone’s volunteer mission to help the people of Ukraine was a resounding success. The Heritage Health counselor recently returned from a six-week volunteer mission in Ukraine, raising more than $100,000 to help evacuees.
The money helps fund a new 5,000-square-foot shelter and buys food for evacuees. The building provides sleeping space, kitchens and showers.
Malone also delivered medical supplies from Heritage Health to Chevnihiv, a city in northern Ukraine.
“Some of the worst fighting was in Chevnihiv,” Malone said. “I am grateful Heritage Health was able to help.”
In securing the shelter, Malone established a network within Ukraine to maximize relief efforts and he create a food delivery system that is feeding hundreds of families. He connected with religious and community leaders who were grateful for the assistance.
“I learned so much from this experience,” Malone said. “It has helped me grow as a person.”
Heritage Health CEO Mike Baker praised Malone’s dedication to making a difference,
“Jared’s story is amazing,” Baker said. “We’re proud of what he was able to accomplish and it shows that we have the best people working for Heritage Health.”
