They're open on Sundays?

Mavis tire may be open. Otherwise you can always call chaveirim.

Don’t want to deal with Mavis. Don’t want to take advantage of Chaveirim, unless this is something they’ll charge for.

This is what they're meant for. Sunday mornings when no one is open.

And you can give a donation to "pay" for thier services.

You can ask the person who comes and they'll  give you an envelope to send a donation in.

Let the dispatcher know it's a non emegrcy, and they'll put the call out that way.
They have volunteers that want to help you. They signed up for this bec they want to help another person.

Where can I get a tire plugged quickly and at a reasonable price?
I think Express on Kennedy and Clifton is open on Sundays. They charge $10 IIRC.

I went last week to Pine Park. Got there around 1, there were still boxes and no line. Very decent box.
What is the best way to get into pine park coming from the direction of rt.9?
Do you need to go past the park towards Jackson and swing around to the other side of county line so that you are going east bound?

IIRC there is a turning lane westbound, so no need to go around.

There are two programs, one is for kids from any school and for ages 1-18, one is for only families that send to that school (including siblings not from that school), ages 3-18.

You can only get one per kid per day, whether you pick up once a week from schools that give out that way or every day from schools that do daily.

Schools get reimbursed a set amount per meal, if their cost is under that they make money.

My children say Bnos Yaakov has the best overall, they give out every day from 11-1 at Pine Park. Bnos Devorah on Oak Street gives out from out to lunch, Yeshiva K'tana gives out at John Patrick Park on Vine from 4 corners, and cheder toras Zev on Cross gives out from circa, those are good choices too.
Is there pickup on Sunday?

Mavis tire may be open. Otherwise you can always call chaveirim.

interesting, my daughter's school was supposed to have boxes on Friday, when I asked, I was told to just go to Bais Tova.

It's possible they share the same food program.

Which school? Could make sense, although I saw everybody with some type of paper. Bnos Melech was also giving out a Shabbos box to all
