Sears Welcomes DOE Fund To Jackson Heights

Councilmember Helen Sears (D-Jackson Heights/Elmhurst) was joined by local business owners and area residents to formally welcome the "men in blue" of the Doe Fund's centerpiece Ready, Willing & Able program to Jackson Heights. Sears was able to secure the funding necessary to bring the Doe Fund's well-known Community Improvement Project street cleaning services to Jackson Heights. The hours and areas of operation will be 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday, along 37th. Avenue between 70th. and 81st. Streets, along 37th. Road between 73rd. and 77th. Streets, and on 73rd. and 74th. Streets between Roosevelt and 37th. Avenues."The Doe Fund provides people in need the opportunity to break the cycles of homelessness, addiction, and criminal recidivism, while providing a much needed service to the community," said Sears.
