The New Jersey Jewish Business Alliance is seeking donations of medical supplies from Garden State businesses or monetary contributions to equip an EMS organization operating throughout Israel with the medical supplies and equipment it needs to care for those wounded in the war.
“We are working to procure medical equipment and supplies for the wounded as well as resources for those who are displaced,” said David Rosenberg, executive director of the New Jersey Jewish Business Alliance, in a letter to New Jersey business leaders.
“We are asking you, as a corporate citizen of New Jersey, to please contribute so we can make a bigger impact. Please let us know of any care items you are able to donate to this cause and we will have it picked up and shipped to those who need it most,” Rosenberg said.
Businesses that have medical supplies that can be donated, should contact Ameya Pendse at the New Jersey Jewish Business Alliance at Ameya@njjba.com.
Businesses and individuals can also make a monetary contribution to United Hatzalah of Israel, the largest independent, nonprofit, fully volunteer emergency medical services organization providing free emergency medical first response throughout Israel.
United Hatzalah is raising funds to equip more EMS volunteers with the protective vests and helmets, oxygen tanks, defibrillators, trauma bandages, and tourniquets needed to respond to ongoing attacks and treat the injured.
