Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer presented a $101,000 check yesterday to members of the Samaritan Village Woodside Senior Center. The funds will help the organization improve its senior health and fitness initiatives. The funds will also be used to fund the construction of a modern gym and exercise room.
Meanwhile, this past Saturday, Van Bramer joined forces with the Roosevelt Court Association, the Citizens Committee of New York City, Home Depot and local volunteers to plant spruces in the newly installed planter boxes along 47th and 48th streets between 39th and Skillman Avenue in Sunnyside. Van Bramer helped sponsor the beautification project by securing $3,500.
