Bikur Cholim of Lakewood 24 hr fundraiser
Tuesday, starting at 2:00 pm EST, you will have the special opportunity to share the burden with Bikur Cholim of Lakewood!
Bikur Cholim of Lakewood has one overriding goal: to help wherever help is needed. It provides free transportation to out-of-town medical appointments, kosher meals and food pantries in area hospitals, and a selection of medical equipment available for loan.
Bikur Cholim of Lakewood now services most of the NJ area hospitals. Food pantries are restocked daily, and comfortable Shabbos accommodations for patients' families are at the ready. Patient advocacy, another aspect of Bikur Cholim, helps families navigate the hospital system and ensures that patients receive the most appropriate and best quality care available.
The goal of this campaign is to purchase 5 new vehicles used to transport over 17,000 rides yearly.
We need YOU to help cover the expenses that will keep these vehicles on the road!
RIDE THE WAVE toward a fully supported transportation system for every single sick person in our community, and help us continue our care for each victim of medical emergency..
In partnership with Charidy.com, and with your help, we are raising $720,000 for Bikur Cholim of Lakewood!
We have 3 generous benefactor matchers who have pledged to quadruple your donation. That means that for every dollar that you give, Bikur Cholim of Lakewood will get $4.
This is an incredible opportunity to SHARE THE BURDEN and show your support and make a real difference for the cholim in the NY/NJ area hospitals!
