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 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.
