Assemblywoman Margaret Markey, center left, gathered with leaders of the Maspeth Chamber of Commerce on July 9 to announce expanded street cleaning and maintenance services

Funded by Markey, the weekday supplementary sanitation services will be performed by workers from the Doe Fund, a nonprofit organization that provides paid transitional work to people with histories of homelessness, incarceration and/or substance abuse.

“I am delighted to support the Chamber’s work in improving the business climate in Maspeth and to see the return of this successful collaboration with the Doe Fund,” Markey said.

Doe Fund workers will work three days a week through the end of the year on Grand Avenue between 64 and 73 streets.
