The British War Relief Association (BWRA) was a United States-based humanitarian organization that dealt with the supply of non-military aid such as clothes, food, and other supplies to the people of Great Britain during World War II.  Prior to the United States entering the war, the US, though carrying an isolationist attitude to the events of the war, provided aid to Britain. As the war progressed, a number of charities appeared across the United States to aid the people of Britain by sending humanitarian supplies and aid.
