Chaverim of Queens established the Purim “Don’t Drink and Drive campaign” in 2009. It was founded to prevent the likelihood that someone will chas veshalom be tempted to drive on this festive day while under the influence.
A hotline number was established; volunteers will be dispatched to drive individuals who are not sober so they don’t have to get behind the wheel.
“By putting this program together, we know as well as every parent, wife, and friend that the people they care about will have a safe night and won’t be in a position to make any mistakes,” said Chaverim coordinator Avigdor Cyperstein.
If you or someone you know needs this service, please call or text (347) 684-1155 to have a volunteer from the Chaverim of Queens Purim program come, pick you up and drive you to your destination, within the Queens area.
The only information the dispatcher will need is the pickup and drop-off address and a callback number. All your information remains confidential.
