Press Release Image

North-Side Pittsburgh based Brother’s Brother Foundation (BBF) is sending relief supplies for those affected by Hurricane Laura in the city of Shreveport and the greater Louisiana and Texas regions. BBF has made an offer of 50,000 face masks, 26,500 pairs of exam gloves, and 2,707 hard hats, along with cleaning supplies, directly to the office of Mayor Adrian Perkins. We are very grateful to Mayor Perkins and his staff for their quick response in working with BBF.

BBF is also working in collaboration with Gleaning for the World of Concord, Virginia, to facilitate additional shipments of relief supplies to the affected areas in Texas and Louisiana. These shipments complement our earlier efforts with Food for the Poor in Coconut Creek, Florida to send protective equipment such as safety gloves, hard hats, PPE, diabetes management equipment and other needed medical supplies, to those affected by Hurricane Laura in Haiti. These items will be distributed in the southern part of the country where homes were destroyed by flooding and winds.

100% of funds received for BBF’s response to Hurricane Laura will be used to support emergency relief and logistics to the affected areas. Your donations and support are greatly appreciated. Credit card donations can be made here. Checks should be made payable to Brother’s Brother Foundation and sent to the address below. Please note U.S. Disaster Relief in the memo field. Thank you.

Brother’s Brother Foundation P.O. Box 645934 Pittsburgh, PA 15264-5257
