Brother’s Brother Foundation (BBF) is responding to the devastation caused by hurricane Sally and the catastrophic wildfires in California, Oregon and Washington. BBF is working with local organizations in the affected areas to help address the needs of community members whose lives have been tragically impacted by these ongoing calamities.

BBF is providing support to Manna Food Pantries, in Pensacola, Florida, and Feeding The Gulf Coast, in Theodore, Alabama, in response to Hurricane Sally. These Food Banks are located in communities directly impacted by the hurricane and are working tirelessly to help community members who are trying to recover from the impact of the storm and the challenges that lie ahead.

In response to the California fires, BBF is providing support to the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano in Fairfield, California, and supporting firefighting efforts in the area. Our partnership with this Food Bank first came about after the 2019 California wildfires and their efforts are critical in helping families in need. BBF is also supporting firefighting efforts in the affected areas. These efforts include providing support to the Oregon Volunteer Firefighters Association Volunteer Relief Fund, which assists firefighters throughout that state, the Wildland Firefighter Foundation, which assists families of fallen or injured wildland firefighters, and the Mid-Valley Wildfire Relief Fund of the United Way of the Mid-Willamette Valley in Oregon, which helps to restore services to those who have lost their homes.

100% of funds received for BBF’s response to Hurricane Sally and the Wildfires 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 at Checks should be made payable to Brother’s Brother Foundation and sent to the address below.
