Fieldsheer, a technology and apparel company known for its Mobile Warming and Mobile Cooling lines of temperature-controlled clothing, is sending 1,700 pieces of its heated clothing to Ukraine, a country ravaged by war.

Clothing items such as heated vests, jackets, socks, and gloves will be distributed to various recipients, including members of the Territorial Defense Forces (TDF). These volunteers enlisted at the start of the Russian invasion to fight alongside Ukrainian soldiers and are now considered an official part of the Ukrainian army. The Bluetooth-enabled apparel will also be given to citizens displaced from their homes due to the fighting, as well as people from liberated villages who have lost all their possessions. Additionally, the clothing will be provided to volunteers who are physically delivering the items.

Fieldsheer representatives are teaming up with the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America (UCCA), a group founded in 1940 to give voice to the Ukrainian-American community. UCCA typically spearheads numerous educational programs, political advocacy efforts, and fundraising campaigns, but since the Russian invasion began in February 2021, they have shifted their focus to providing humanitarian aid to the Ukrainian people.

Given the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, it is no surprise that millions of people have been left homeless and without basic necessities such as warm clothing. This need is further compounded by the destruction of electric and gas utilities caused by country-wide bombings, leaving both soldiers and civilians to endure extreme conditions.

Tamara Olexy, Executive Director for UCCA, expressed her immense appreciation for all the companies that have contributed to this humanitarian effort, particularly Fieldsheer. “We’ve had so many companies step up and provide much-needed products and services to the Ukrainian people,” she said. “It is heartening, in the midst of all the suffering, to see the outpouring of selfless aid that is so desperately needed. Fieldsheer has made a particularly significant contribution, given that helping soldiers and displaced citizens stay warm is a top priority. To those who have nothing, warm clothing can literally be lifesaving. Their generosity, as well as that of all our contributors, is a silver lining in a very black cloud.”

John Cacopardo, Chief Revenue Officer for Fieldsheer, believes his company has a responsibility to make a positive impact wherever and whenever it can. He says, “Putting all politics aside, this amounts to helping people who desperately need something vital to their well-being – something that we are capable of providing. Not participating in this effort was not an option.”

“There’s no question the Ukrainian people have a tough road ahead of them,” he added. “If we as a company can do anything to make that road just a bit smoother, we feel compelled to do it.”
