City Officials Visit BBF


This spring, BBF welcomed Pittsburgh city and county officials to our warehouse on Galveston Avenue. The visit followed a collaborative effort to collect items to make hygiene kits for Ukrainian refugees and other individuals displaced by the war. City of Pittsburgh Mayor Ed Gainey, President of the Allegheny Fayette Labor Council Darrin Kelly, and County Executive Rich Fitzgerald visited to assemble the hygiene kits and finalize shipment. The drive was a great success with nearly 60 different locations participating throughout the area and 16-20 pallets worth of hygiene kits and related items having been donated.
