Print Friendly, PDF & Email

It seems that everywhere you turn these days, governments, businesses, organizations and individuals are donating their time, talents and funds to Ukraine as it battles valiantly against Russian invaders. Local artist Fillippo Aliperta is doing his part by creating ceramic “heart pins” that portray the American and Ukrainian flags and giving them away at his Glenview hair salon, Estetica. At press time, he had raised $500 in goodwill donations. “I feel that everyone should support the Ukrainian people in every way that they can,” Aliperta says.
