Brother's Brother Foundation (BBF) is helping to send four tractor trailer load of assistance to those in need due to Hurricane Sandy. BBF is working with Gleaning For The World (GFTW) which is ready to be on the scene as soon as it is safe to be there. GFTW has packed and sent out trucks to arrive tomorrow , November 1st, to aid in the relief efforts in the New York City (Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and the East Village in Manhattan). In response to the overwhelming damage, GFTW has sent non-perishables, water and blankets to be distributed. BBF is requesting only financial support (no clothing or food) to send additional emergency aid as quickly as possible. BBF, working with GFTW, has sent 28 tractor trailer loads of requested donations following weather-related disasters in the United States during the last year.
BBF is a 56-year old Pittsburgh-based international charity with a newly opened warehouse in Fairfax, Virginia. BBF has provided over 100,000 tons 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. 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. Within the last month the Virginia warehouse assisted with supplies for two containers to the affected countries in Africa.
