Daniel Straus, CEO of the integrated healthcare network, plans to continue arranging ongoing flights in support of CareOne’s ongoing humanitarian efforts
October 19, 2023 – FORT LEE, NEW JERSEY – CareOne, a leading, family-owned senior care provider with more than 60 locations in the Northeast, sprang into immediate action following the atrocities that took place in Israel in early October. Led by CEO and philanthropist, Daniel Straus, CareOne donates millions of supplies to Israel with the help of its partners and the community. Together, they have been able to provide lifesaving medical supplies among other necessities to those on the ground affected by this crisis.
What started with the donation of one camelback on Tuesday, October 10, has turned into more than $1 million worth of supplies collected and counting. Three flights, arranged by the Straus family, successfully transported 200 reservist soldiers, physicians, and families of victims last week. Additionally, more than two million items were collected, including lifesaving medical supplies, batteries, headlamps, phone chargers, clothes, baby formula, camelbacks, sleeping bags, hygiene products, and more.
“At CareOne, the duty of caregiving extends beyond the walls of our facilities. It is ingrained in everything we do,” said Straus. “I am profoundly grateful that with the help of hundreds of volunteers, our neighbors, and business partners in the local community, we have successfully completed the first fourflights to Israel, delivering lifesaving supplies and medications to those on the ground. We remain committed to aiding innocent civilians in Israel in perpetuity.”
While the tumultuous situation in Israel continues, there is no end in sight for CareOne’s humanitarian efforts.
“We are forever indebted to those who have come together to support our efforts thus far, and our work continues,” continued Straus. “It is crucial that we continue to collect supplies to help those in crisis. Any donation is appreciated, as every bit helps.”
CareOne thanks its staff, partners, and communities who have answered their call for help to ensure this cause is supported. Donations can be dropped off at CareOne at Teaneck – 544 Teaneck Road, Teaneck NJ 17666, and monetary donations can also be made to the UJA Federation New York.
