A family is looking to start a new Gemach. They have funding, but not much time or space for it. Any suggestions?

A gmach that will substitute credit unions, prevent ribis issues

And of course a gmach that would lend me some money.

International cell phone gemach (just the phone). Although this might take away some other people's business.

Don't know if it's a good idea or if there is such a thing already. Just putting it out

Schools, babysitters, and jetpacks to avoid the traffic (and for safety!).

Public transportation. Something like the hannaka or some bus service for those without cars and smart phones to get around.
 So many frum yidden and no public transportation avlb for them.
 Ain't gonna happen so fast in a small town. But the thought or idea is what counts.

Was thinking of that for older people (they have it in Brooklyn I think) but will take up way too much time or money.

Honestly, a gemach that pays for people to have life insurance. It should be mandatory, if you canít afford it the gemach will pay for it.

That would be classified as tzedaka. Not a Gmach.

There are only two types of people that can't afford to pay for life insurance:

1. Those that have issues, that make only rated (i.e. More expensive than standard rates, and definitely more than preferred rates) policies available to them, or no insurance available to them at all in the individual underwritten market.

2. Those that can't afford their bare necessities even while they are alive.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Term life insurance is very cheap (whole and universal are a separate conversation).

Except for the 2 categories of people that I mentioned.
