SFWD owners dedicate space to La Jornada (Queens Chronicle)

Several days after a number of city councilmembers said the Special Flushing Waterfront District wouldn’t adequately serve the needs of the Flushing community, the development owners revealed they would dedicate space to child mentoring and senior recreational services.

FWRA, LLC and the La Jornada food pantry teamed up to serve more than 3,000 turkeys to families in Flushing Meadows Corona Park on Nov. 22.
