Ventura County Sheriff’s Office leads the effort to collect supplies to provide humanitarian aid to the citizens of Ukraine.
The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office in partnership with the Ventura County Fire Department is assembling a surplus of ballistic vest, helmets, and medical supplies that have reached their recommended life span. Although the collected items can no longer be used by the agencies, they will provide a layer of protection to those providing medical care to the citizens of Ukraine.
“Our hope for this equipment, which has helped to keep first responders safe right here in our own community, is that it will help to save lives in the struggle for Ukraine’s future,” said Sheriff Bill Ayub.
The items will be collected countywide and shipped to Ukraine where they will be distributed.
