Support the Displaced Families of 561 & 565 W. 144th Street

On Friday, November 17th, our community was devastated by a six-alarm fire, with dozens of families forced to leave their apartments with only the clothes on their backs and a handful of personal items. The nearly 90 residents of 565 West 144th Street are in dire need of support for clothing, food, school supplies, hygiene products, and more.

Please donate and help our neighbors in need during this holiday season.
