Charity helping quake victims
A Pittsburgh-based international charity began accepting cash donations Sunday to help earthquake victims in El Salvador, the day after a massive temblor struck near the capital city of San Salvador.
Luke Hingson, president of The Brother’s Brother Foundation, said his organization will be working with a number of groups, including the Salvadoran-American Health Foundation in Miami.
The group is not accepting donations of clothing or other personal items. Hingson said his group receives most material donations from corporations and other large groups and needs cash donations from the public to transport relief supplies.
‘We have made similar appeals in the past and in those appeals, we generated enough to provide enough needed resources to fill close to 150 tractor trailers of assistance,’ Hingson said.
Checks may be sent to Brother’s Brother Foundation, Suite 3005, 1501 Reedsdale St., Pittsburgh, PA 15233. Donors should specify that they want their contributions earmarked for El Salvador relief efforts.
