The Factory concert venue making donation to help refugees after Ukrainian band cancels show


With their country under siege since the Russian invasion,  the Ukrainian four-piece Progressive Groove metal band known as JINJER has alerted fans that it is canceling its upcoming U.S. tour, which included a stop at The Factory in Chesterfield on March 13th.

After the announcement, the venue made its own, showing support for the band, and the Ukrainian people.

🇺🇦 In light of these events and to do our part in supporting the overwhelming humanitarian effort that is underway in Ukraine, #TheFactorySTL is making a donation of $5,000 to the United Hatzalah.

Our gift towards United Hatzalah’s Ukraine emergency response will ensure that those trapped in the war zone and refugees fleeing the Ukraine will be treated by a team of professional, caring volunteers who are well-stocked with emergency medical equipment and prepared for any eventuality.
