Local Partnerships & Commitments
Article by Abigael Siecinski
Since 1958 Brother’s Brother Foundation (BBF) has been a recognizable actor on the global stage of humanitarian aid. Over the past year and a half, we have turned our expertise towards our own back yard to help support healthcare and education services here in Western Pennsylvania.
I wanted to take this time to highlight some new and historical partners we are working with in the coming weeks and months. Throughout this month we have plans to provide the Latino Community Center with face masks for their weekly distribution boxes which are delivered to their program’s families. These boxes provide their students and families with supplies to stay safe, healthy, and succeed in their school work. We are also partnering with Mooncrest Neighborhood Programs and the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh to supply them with gloves and face masks for their programs and constituents.
We look forward to growing and maintaining these relationships while we continue to reach out to new organizations in the Western Pennsylvania area with which we can collaborate. Having the ability to share our resources and knowledge to better our own community while continuing our work abroad is an exciting and fulfilling addition to the BBF Programs Department.
