Brooklyn, NY - Borough President Honors Jewish Volunteer Organization As Brooklyn’s “Heroes Of The Month”
Brooklyn, NY - , Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams paid tribute to a not-profit organization in Borough Park which distributed over three thousand free hot meals last month to needy patients in hospitals across Brooklyn.
This is a continuation of Borough President Adams’s monthly “Hero of the Month” events honoring the accomplishments of Brooklynites from all walks of life.
“When someone goes beyond the call of duty in serving their community, I think it’s important that we acknowledge them and hold them up as the bright stars that shine the way forward for our borough,” said Borough President Adams.
The volunteer members of Yad Ephraim work to ease the pain and suffering of patients in hospitals throughout Brooklyn, with members that donate their time on a 24-7 basis to ease the burden of the sick and the suffering. In addition to free hot food programs, volunteers visit patients in hospital rooms every day, offering a listening ear, a warm meal, or sometimes simply their presence to help pass the time more pleasantly.
Last month, in time for the Jewish High Holiday season, Yad Ephraim distributed over three thousand free hot meals to patients and their families. Additionally, they organize blood drives as well as offer prayer services and sleepover accommodations.
“Yad Ephraim is an organization that is a parachute and a lifesaver for the communities of Borough Park and Flatbush,” said Yumi Kleinbart, a board member of Yad Ephraim. “Volunteers of Yad Ephraim are there, giving chicken soup for the soul or a freshly cooked meal, all cooked in their own kitchens.”
