To date, Grassroots Motorsports incredible charitable Ukraine aid operation has raised approximately $6000 to construct a shelter to house 45 Ukrainian refugees in Kisgorbo, Hungary.
They have also sustained their shelter with monthly donations of $1300, additionally collecting and donating cash, food, clothing, hygiene items, and even toys to multiple shelters and organisations in Budapest and Papa, Hungary.
But it doesn’t end there! They have also coordinated cash donations and personally delivered food, drinking water, medicine, and medical supplies directly into Ukraine on three separate occasions, and are currently preparing for another delivery to Dnipro’s Children’s Hospital.
Bill Grow, known as Hungary Bill on the forum, described by the digital periodical as “a pillar of their online community for more than a decade” has been in charge of the Ukraine aid operation since it began.
In an interview with Grassroots Motorsports he stated:
“I don’t think there’s any explanation I could ever give as to why we got the ball rolling,” he stated.
“I think the Grassroots forum family members have always just been people of action. It’s so common for us to see on the forum now that we joke about it, but the members of our community routinely and successfully tackle situations that are comically larger than our individual selves or abilities.”
“I think that when our community saw what was happening in Ukraine, we simply knew that something needed to be done. So we got to work doing it. We’ll figure out the rest along the way, right?”
