Doe Fund Workers to Clean Stretch of 36th Ave. in Dutch Kills
DUTCH KILLS — The Doe Fund will expand its street cleaning program in Long Island City to include a stretch of 36th Avenue in Dutch Kills, according to City Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer, who allocated $33,000 for the service.
Workers from the nonprofit will be dispatched the the area two days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., cleaning 36th Avenue between 27th and 36th Streets, according to Van Bramer's office.
The councilman has allocated $133,000 to street cleaning in his district this year, including expanding the number of streets being cleaned in Hunters Point earlier this summer and continuing The Doe Fund's services in Woodside, which started there in 2012.
The Doe Fund works with formerly incarcerated and homeless people, providing them with transitional jobs and other social services, according to the nonprofit's website.
