Following the terror attacks on Israel, Jeff Stark of Florham Park felt compelled to help. He bought 33 pounds over-the-counter medications, flew to Israel with them, and personally delivered them to donate to Yad Sarah’s Community Pharmacy, which distributes the medications to people who need them.
Yad Sarah is Israel’s largest volunteer-led service organization, with more than 7,000 volunteers in more than 120 branches lending medical equipment, facilitating healthcare and homecare, and supporting the elderly and victims of domestic violence, among other projects.
“Israel needs our help now more than ever before,” Mr. Stark said. “It’s different to be here with boots on the ground, providing much-needed medicines, transporting supplies, picking vegetables, and helping the people of Israel.”
In addition to his donation, Mr. Stark is volunteering at Yad Sarah’s repair shop and will deliver critical supplies and transportation to the people of Israel.
