Senator Biaggi's Week in Review: 1/10/22-1/14/22


Senator Alessandra Biaggi

Dear Community,

This Sunday, January 9th, the Bronx was devastated by a tragic fire on 333 East 181st which left 17 people dead, including 8 children. My heart aches for the victims, their loved ones, and for our entire community. Since the fire, my office and I have been organizing and sharing resources on ways to help the families impacted by the fire. For the most up-to-date information on how to help, refer to my Twitter thread

There has been an enormous number of contributions in the form of clothing and goods, so if you would like to help at this time, the following two organizations are collecting monetary donations on behalf of the survivors:

  • BStrong, in partnership with Global Empowerment Mission, is distributing kits with basic necessities and cash to survivors → donate here
  • The Gambian Youth Organization is accepting contributions via GoFundMe to provide cash directly to survivors → donate here

I’d like to give a special thank you to our Pelham, Riverdale, and Woodlawn communities for immediately mobilizing to collect and distribute donations for those impacted– a true testament to their commitment to always help those in their darkest hour. 

I’m incredibly grateful for the outpouring of love and support that our community has received at this time. It is absolutely remarkable to see the entirety of District 34 come together to help our neighbors rebuild. Thank you all for your generosity and aid.

With Gratitude,

State Senator Alessandra Biaggi
