The drive also accepts monetary donations to purchase military-grade equipment. Cornerstone Mortgage in De Pere is even matching cash donations up to $3,000.
“You know, I have had people asking me what they can do. At first, I didn’t know what could be done. And just talking to other people, we decided to do this drive and just help the people needing things in Ukraine,” explained Tanya Sushkova, owner of Cornerstone Mortgage.

Drop-off locations have been set up at:
- Cornerstone Mortgage (1494 Mid Valley Drive, De Pere),
- Relyco Incorporated (1195 Scheuring Road, De Pere),
