The action has been taking place in the region for several years. The organizers note that its goal is to instill in people patriotic values and to involve the population in helping veterans.
“The participants help to preserve the memory of the terrible events of the Great Patriotic War and thank the heroes not only in word, but also in deed,” the Victory Volunteers explain.
Donations are voluntary. Everyone who drops a bill or a coin into the box receives a badge with a red carnation. The proceeds will be used to treat veterans.
The promotion will last until June 22. To find out more details or take part, Ugra residents can call (3467) 32-92-97.
