Burgh Bees was recently select as one of the 2017 Peck Family Foundation gift recipients. We recently had the pleasure to meet Josh Bailey a family member, who recently relocated to the Pittsburgh area to pursue a opportunity in the real estate industry. Josh became very interested in Burgh Bees mission, our educational outreach, and community events and decided to sit down with the board in July to talk about the future of our organization and how the Peck Foundation might support Beekeepers in the local Pittsburgh area.

At the Annual Peck Foundation Yearly Meeting in Seattle WA this August, Josh made a formal presentation on Burg Bees our accomplishments and his interest in having the Peck Foundation support our organization in future expansion projects, specifically the Brookline Apiary. Josh requested a $2,000.00 donation and was granted a $2,900.00 contribution from the Foundation.

We appreciate the support of Josh, the Peck Family and The Foundation for its generous support of our organization and future development of the Brookline Community Apiary. The Peck Family Foundation is the legacy of Norton L. and Barbara B. Peck. The Foundation web site is The Peck Family Foundation
