Sunnyside Post: Sunnyside stands with neighbors displaced by 5-alarm inferno last year as they face further evictions by landlord

Sunnyside Post covered a rally in Sunnyside, where participants advocated to extend the temporary apartment leases for residents who were displaced by a five-alarm fire last December.

Among those interviewed was SCS Executive Director Judy Zangwill, who said “Sunnyside Community Services stands with the former residents in calling for an extension of their temporary leases in order for these families to have some stability. Members of the SCS senior center and children from our youth programs were forced out of their homes when this fire occurred. We worked with them through the shock and trauma as this community rallied together to support them. Further hurt could be avoided by simply extending the leases while renovations to the building continue.”
