UNIVERSITY CITY, Mo. — More than 20 businesses in University City are joining forces to help support relief efforts in Ukraine.

On Sunday, the Delmar Loop was packed with people, which meant good foot traffic for establishments and an opportunity for customers to give back.

“We feel helpless being here. Our hands are tied. There’s not a lot that we can do so this is a way to try and give back,” said Wendy Harris, who owns of Artisans in the Loop, an art gallery that houses works by local and national artists.

Proceeds from sales are donated to World Central Kitchen, an organization that serves hot meals at multiple border crossings to Ukrainians fleeing the violence.
