Support Ukraine Hoodie Partnership with Local Laundry


YMCA Calgary and apparel company, Local Laundry, have teamed up to support those affected by the war in Ukraine with the release of a limited edition bamboo zip-up hoodie.

100% of profits from the Ukraine zip-up sweater will be donated to YMCA Calgary, who will facilitate the donation to the YMCA’s in Ukraine who are assisting people in leaving the country, finding safe shelter, and providing warm blankets, personal hygiene products, basic aid items and medical supplies.

The Ukraine Zip-Up Sweater is strictly our response to the crisis and a way for us to give back and involve our community at large in the ability to support struggling people in and fleeing Ukraine by supporting a local initiative. We felt it was our responsibility to release a garment that allowed our community of Locals to feel like they could direct donations, support and efforts to the war happening in Ukraine.Connor Curran, Co-founder of Local Laundry
Over the last 15 years, YMCA Calgary has worked together with YMCA Ukraine with the common goal – to make our communities better for future generations. Our shared priority now is to support urgent humanitarian needs abroad as well as supporting refugees as they come to Canada. The Ukraine Zip-Up Sweater provides a way for customers to support charity with a direct impact.
The YMCA Ukraine teams are dealing with an evolving humanitarian crisis in Ukraine – and they need our support now more than ever. We’re grateful for the leadership and generosity of Local Laundry to help us raise awareness and funds for YMCA Ukraine.Shannon Doram, President & CEO, YMCA Calgary
