With their country under siege since the Russian invasion, Ukrainian four-piece Progressive Groove band known as JINJER have alerted fans that they are canceling their upcoming US tour, which included a stop at The Factory in Chesterfield on March 13.
After the announcement, the venue made its own, showing its support for the group and the people of Ukraine.
In light of these events and to do our part to support the huge humanitarian effort that is underway in Ukraine, #TheFactorySTL is donating $5,000 to the united hatzalah.
Our donation to the United Hatzalah emergency response in Ukraine will ensure that those trapped in the war zone and refugees fleeing Ukraine are treated by a team of professional and caring volunteers, well supplied with medical supplies from emergency and prepared for any eventuality.

“At The Factory, we have made our charitable contributions and involvement a priority,” says Michael Staenberg, Chairman of the Staenberg Group. “Whether locally or globally, we believe in supporting our fellow human beings.”
