HAWTHORNE, N.J. – The community is rallying around a Hawthorne copywriter and rideshare driver as he nears open heart surgery.

Alan Chalfin, 70, is slated to undergo the operation on Oct. 9, according to a GoFundMe page created to raise funds for his living expenses as he recovers.

“Though I have medical coverage, I don't have enough money to cover my living expenses while I'm recovering from the surgery which could take a month or 2,” Chalfin wrote on the page.

More than $10,000 had been donated by Tuesday afternoon.

“Your open hearts will truly help heal my open heart procedure,” he wrote.
