Rides to visit graves of loved ones
Several members of our community would like to visit the graves of loved ones in Cedar Park cemetery, NJ. Public transit bus no longer runs there, so they have no way of getting there.
The JCC of Washington Heights is looking for volunteers with cars who can drive people over to the cemetery one Sunday, wait as they pay their respects, and then drive them back. The entire trip should be expected to last 2 to 3 hours.
Please contact :email@example.com if you can help with this tremendous chesed.
