BBF RESPONDS TO WEST VIRGINIA CHEMICAL SPILL NEEDS
January 11, 2014
BBF is working with Gleaning For The World (GFTW) in the aftermath of the recent chemical spill in West Virginia. GFTW has sent six tractor trailer loads of bottled water to FEMA and faith based distribution sites in the Charleston, West Virginia area. The first loads have been delivered and a total of 130,000 bottles of water have been distributed.
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.
