The three organizations held a bake sale at the school, and netted $400, which was donated to the American Red Cross.

BRTV and the football team collected school supplies at the BRHS home football game versus Phillipsburg. Members of the communities of both BRHS and Phillipsburg made school supply donations, all of which were donated to the Salvation Army for distribution to areas affected by the two hurricanes.
