It’s no secret that there is a universal outcry for the people of Ukraine and what they are going through. As we continue with our daily lives, we can’t help but move with a heavy heart. We at Brite can’t sit back and not do our part to help. Being a leader in our industry comes with a responsibility to step up and help where we can. Brite’s core values align with philanthropy and social responsibility.

The Brite team has partnered with Irene Bubis from Bluerose.com to help bring aid to Ukraine. Irene is based in New York and has been working diligently to get assistance to Ukraine since Russia declared war on the nation. She was featured on CNN to discuss how she was helping and anything she may need. Irene required a load transport for medical supplies like wheelchairs, hospital bed sheets, wound care kits, and critical first aid items for Ukrainian soldiers. She was connected to the Brite Logistics team by mutual contacts to help transport the load to be packed on a flight heading to Poland for aid. Our operations team quickly jumped in to help. Operations coordinated a truck to pick up the shipment and get it to the plane in time for takeoff.
