New Jersey Meest warehouse dedicated to shipping supplies to Ukraine

WOODBRIDGE, N.J. (WABC) – Meest’s warehouse space in Woodbridge is now fully dedicated to receiving, sorting and shipping much-needed supplies to Ukraine. That’s all they’re doing right now, 24 hours a day.

“‘Meest’ actually means ‘bridge’ in Ukrainian,” said Natalia Brandafi. “When the war started, we lost 85% of our business, so we reorganized to ship goods.”

Some of the most critical items arriving are the first out – medical supplies, sleeping bags and gear for those on the front lines fighting for freedom.

The majority of people working at Meest are Ukrainians and now have volunteer status, working to help, while worrying about their family members who are abroad and in danger, possibly risking death for cling to their country.

They sort and pack as fast as they can. The biggest potential obstacle to their efforts is money. They need money to pay for cargo planes to fly all this to Ukraine.

Meest is in desperate need of money from people at home, or any business or corporation that is willing to fund a loan. Any amount helps.
