With the help of Councilman Eric Ulrich (R-Ozone Park), center, The Doe Fund has been tapped to restore and clean up Charles Park and Hamilton Beach Park, two areas residents have long complained were in need of a cleaning, especially after Hurricane Sandy.

The Doe Fund, which helps formerly homeless and incarcerated men through transitional employment and other services, expects to dedicate nine individuals to complete the work. Over the winter, The Doe Fund assisted with cleaning a stretch of Cross Bay Boulevard between Howard Beach and Broad Channel near the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge.

Joining Ulrich for the announcement in Hamilton Beach Tuesday are some of The Doe Funds “men in blue” workers, left, The Doe Fund Founder and President George McDonald, also a GOP candidate for mayor, Pat McCabe of state Sen. Joe Addabbo Jr.’s office, Roger Gendron, president of the New Hamilton Beach Civic Association, and Community Board 10 Chairwoman Betty Braton.

Welcome to the discussion.
