BROTHER’S BROTHER FOUNDATION WITH
GLEANING FOR THE WORLD RESPONDING
 TO THE
AFTERMATH OF RECENT FLOODS IN THE EASTERN U.S.

September 9, 2011

Brother's Brother Foundation working with Gleaning For the World and other partner organizations are responding to requests for help in the aftermath of floods in the Eastern U.S.  Gleaning For the World in Lynchburg, Virginia will serve as a local charity distributor of Brother’s Brother Foundation resources to assist those affected.  Gleaning For the World provides food, humanitarian supplies and other items to those in need around the world. Currently, Gleaning For the World is shipping requested supplies including bottled water, disaster blankets, cleaning products and baby food to those in need in Bloomsburg and Harrisburg, PA.  BBF is assisting with the costs of shipping requested supplies to flood damaged regions in the Eastern United States including Pennsylvania.  Within the last week BBF and Gleaning for the World have sent 10 tractor trailer loads of requested supplies, helping flood victims in Virginia, New York and Pennsylvania.

BBF, a 56-year old Pittsburgh-based international charity, has provided over
$4 billion of medical supplies, textbooks, food, seeds, and other humanitarian supplies to people around the world in over 140 countries.  With the help of gifts from the general public, corporations and foundations, in 2013 BBF sent product contributions to those in need in 64 countries including Burundi, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica, Liberia, Nicaragua, Philippines, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Sri Lanka and Zambia.  These shipments were the equivalent of 252 tractor trailer loads.  Also in 2013, BBF provided supplies for 321 medical and humanitarian
hand-carry mission trips.

Forbes Magazine highlighted BBF as one of only three charities with a 100% rating for both fundraising efficiency and charitable commitment, November 2013. The Better Business Bureau continues to give BBF its “Wise Giving Alliance Standards” seal of approval.

Donations to assist with shipping costs are greatly appreciated. Credit card donations can be made by calling Brother's Brother Foundation at 412-321-3160. Checks should be made out to Brother's Brother Foundation and sent to:
