Leaders within the NYPD say they can’t stay silent watching the continued attacks and tension in Ukraine. Now, they’re stepping in to help. 
All NYPD precincts around the city will have donation boxes for medical supplies to help victims of the attack. 
They say they’re looking for specific items that sources on the ground in Ukraine say are necessary right now–including first aid, painkillers, bandages, gauze and tourniquets. 
They're asking anyone who wants to donate to make sure none of the items they bring are flammable or perishable. 
This was all organized by members of the Russian American Officers Association. They are a group of more than 400 officers from countries of the former Soviet Union, who say they felt compelled to act. 
The boxes will be in every precinct until March 11. 
They will be shipped to Poland and will then get to Ukraine.
