A Letter of Appreciation


I was very touched after reading about your generous donation of a special vehicle for a disabled young boy in Boro Park. I read your story with tears in my eyes, so comforted that there are such caring and compassionate people as yourself, who are true heroes and role models in the upside down world we live in today.

May G-d bless you and your loved ones with good health, happiness and the means to always give and inspire and help others.

Best wishes for a Happy and Healthy New Year.

Sincerly yours,

As previously posted here, Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) has teamed up with Bay Ridge Toyota and Toyota of Manhattan to present a 2012 Toyota Sienna Mobility Edition van valued at close to $50,000 to the family of 12-year-old Alter Pinter. Alter’s legs were amputated last year after he nearly lost his battle with a vicious case of swine flu which raged through his entire body and spread to his legs. He has been confined to a wheelchair ever since. Click HERE to read the full press release.

We hope that we were able to make this family’s life a little easier. It is unimaginable to even try to understand what this young boy and his family has gone through. To be able to bring a smile to Alter and his family’s faces, and help getting in and out of the vehicle and traveling that much easier is wonderful.

Here is some video from the ceremony that took place in a courtyard outside Mekimi’s office on December 12, 2011.
