Three cheers to the Brooklyn Community Foundation for providing a lifeline and another three cheers to the Caring Neighbors Fund for giving the foundation the gelt ($18,000 to be precise) towards the purchase of a brand-new van. The foundation offers free transportation to families of children with serious illnesses. Whether they live in Flatbush, Borough Park, or Midwood the mitzvah machines transport them to their medical appointments in Manhattan. Every year the Chai Lifeline’s fleet of vans makes more than 15,000 trips to doctor’s offices and hospitals. Oy vey, that’s a lot of mileage.

Brooklyn Community Foundation [45 Main St. between Water and Front streets in Downtown, (347) 750–2310].
