Ukraine Humanitarian Support
Ukraine Humanitarian Support
Earlier this month, Pirates Chairman, Bob Nutting, Pirates Charities and Pirates fans partnered together with Brother's Brother Foundation to help families in need in Ukraine. From April 13-17 all donations made to Pirates Charities, along with all proceeds from the Pirates Charities 50/50 raffle were donated to the Brother's Brother Foundation to support their Humanitarian Aid efforts in Ukraine. In addition to many other relief projects, Brother's Brother Foundation is currently working to get much-needed pediatric medicine to the affected region. The funds raised through Pirates Charities will go towards supporting this much-needed effort. Thank you to all those who donated.
