GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - Several Jewish gators with the group Chabad UF were set to visit Poland for spring break to learn about the country’s Jewish history.


When they arrived, they found hundreds of Ukrainian refugees fleeing their war torn country.

 After speaking with some of the refugees and how they lacked food, the students decided to turn to social media to get funds to purchase food for those who had none.


So far, Chabad UF has raised $50,000 for Ukrainian relief efforts.
