Two Bridgeport brothers, and businessmen, donated school supplies to 250 children in the city.

Marlon and Nate Moran say they were born in the Dominican Republic to a poor family who sacrificed everything to get them an education and a fresh start in the United States.
"We didn't have much but we had a beautiful family, my dad, my mom always working hard for us to push forward and help us to be somebody one day," says Nate Moran.
Over the past decade, the brothers have built up a baking business, an insurance business and a tax preparation business.
"Going through the pain made us stronger because that way we was able to look for every, every opportunity how to develop business, restaurant, here and there," says Marlon Moran.
The men say they want to give back to the community, so they are donating school supplies and backpacks to hundreds of school children.
Miriam Tarzona says it's not easy raising two kids. She is grateful to the brothers for being there for her every step of the way.
The brothers say they never had enough school supplies when they were growing up, and now the simple items are more important than ever.
