Kars4Kids Makes a Kiddush Hashem

Bookmark and Share

It was undoubtedly the most heartbreaking story to emerge in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy: the deaths of Breandon and Connor Moore, ages 2 and 4, after being swept out of their mother’s arms during the storm.

NYPD Lt. Kevin Gallagher, who took care of the bereaved parents in the days after the children’s disappearance, donated the flooded SUV that the family was driving in when it stalled and they were forced to escape to Kars4Kids, an Oorah-affiliated charity.

As soon as Kars4Kids heard the tragic story behind the donation, they resolved to memorialize the two innocent children in some way. Because the Moores were from Staten Island, a coat giveaway for needy children in that borough seemed fitting.

Kars4Kids will be auctioning off the Ford Explorer in order to raise money for the giveaway. They expect to distribute 1,000 coats at the Breandon and Connor Moore Koats4Kids giveaway event in January.
