The GREAT Susan Schrock with the City’s Office of Communication tells us that the Arlington community joined together to raise more than $32,000 to aid Ukrainian refugees currently seeking safe haven in Arlington’s long-time German Sister City, Bad Königshofen.
The City of Arlington launched the Sister Cities United: Aid for Ukraine community donation campaign on March 22 after learning that Bad Königshofen, which is home to fewer than 7,000 residents, had opened its doors to hundreds of people, including approximately 50 children, who fled violence in their home country of Ukraine. The Arlington community, including local businesses and organizations, city employees and even students, quickly embraced the fundraising effort, making donations ranging from $5 to $5,000.
