First Black Woman-owned New York Non-Emergency Transit Service
MedSafe Transport, Inc. kicks off the holiday season at noon on Wednesday, November 27, 2019 with their second annual thanksgiving charity festival. About 150 people will enjoy a delicious meal and a happy party in Copiague, New York. The event is funded by the founder and CEO of MedSafe, Qadirah Rasheed, who loves her culture and considers the family of her clients.
“Nothing is better than having a family. And there’s no better time to make our clientele a part of the MedSafe family than Thanksgiving, not just during this holiday season, but throughout the year, “she said.
MedSafe Transport provides transportation across the state of New York for Medicaid recipients. Many patients of Rasheed are battling mental health problems, abussing drugs, and living in group homes. Many are also faced with poverty, lacking vital resources and support. Society and even their own families are often neglecting this group.
Rasheed is proud to serve those in need as the first Black woman to own a non-emergency medical transportation company in New York. She buys breakfast for her customers every Wednesday along with the annual charity dinner.
“The biggest feeling I have is to give back to those in need. I also enjoy inspiring others by sharing my story and making history as the first African-American woman to own a New York state-owned non-emergency medical transport company, “she said. “Thanksgiving is a time to thank you. I’m happy to host this event to say’ thank you’ to my loyal clientele who added to my industry success.
Guests at the charity feast will also play games, win prizes, and have the opportunity to win two gift baskets through a raffle. Rasheed accepts both monetary donations and food, gift bags and vacation decoration. The donation season of MedSafe Transport will continue with an upcoming Christmas gift.
