First Black Woman-Owned Non-Emergency Transportation Company in New York Gives Back

NationwideMedSafe Transport, Inc. is kicking off the holiday season with their second annual Thanksgiving charity feast, Wednesday, November 27, 2019 at noon. Taking place in Copiague, New York, over 150 people will enjoy a delicious meal and joyful fellowship. The event is sponsored by MedSafe founder and CEO, Qadirah Rasheed, who values her community and considers her clients as family.

“There’s nothing better than having family. And there’s no better time than Thanksgiving to make our clientele be a part of the MedSafe family, not only during this holiday season, but all year long,” she said.

MedSafe Transport provides transportation to Medicaid recipients throughout the state of New York. The majority of Rasheed’s clients battle mental health issues, substance abuse and reside in group homes. Many also face homelessness and lack essential resources and support. This population is often neglected by society and even their own families.

As the first Black woman to own a non-emergency medical transportation company in New York, Rasheed takes pride in serving those in need. Along with the annual charity dinner, she buys breakfast for her clients every Wednesday.

“The greatest feeling I have is giving back to people who are in need. I also enjoy inspiring others through sharing my story and making history as the first African-American woman to own a non-emergency medical transportation company in the state of New York,” she said. “Thanksgiving is a time for giving thanks. I enjoy hosting this event to say ‘thank you’ to my loyal clientele who have added to my success in this industry.”

The charity feast guests will also play games, win prizes, and have a chance to win two gift baskets via raffle. Rasheed is accepting monetary donations as well as food, gift bags and holiday décor. MedSafe Transport’s season of giving will continue with an upcoming Christmas giveaway.
