How Has BBF Responded To COVID-19?

In Blog, Press Releases, Projects by Brother's Brother Foundation

BBF has responded to the COVID-19 crisis by providing Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) to our partners here at home, nationally and around the world. As a PA VOAD (Volunteer Organization Active in Disaster), we are working closely with local government agencies, major healthcare providers and front-line responders in the greater Pittsburgh region. In addition to hospitals, these local efforts focus on clinics serving the underprivileged and often homeless or otherwise in need members of society. We are also prepared to provide equipment, supplies, and hospital beds as requested.

BBF’s is working with the following organizations in regard to our response. In nearly every case, the PPE supplies we have been able to donate have been far less than needed. As such, any support you can provide by donating to the BBF COVID-19 EMERGENCY FUND would be greatly appreciated as we work to acquire additional PPE. Thank you for your continued support of BBF’s efforts. From our family to yours, please keep well & stay safe.

Organizations we are working with include:

  • Allegheny County Emergency Services
  • Hospital & clinical facilities associated with the major Pittsburgh healthcare providers
  • FQHC – Federally Qualified Health Centers
  • Senior Care facilities
  • Residential Care Services
  • Allegheny County Jail
  • Local EMS providers
  • Hospice facilities
