The Community Resource Center became a temporary shelter for eight families who were displaced following an apartment fire at 349 Mount Pleasant Avenue on December 23rd. The Local Live spoke with Jirandy Martinez from the Community Resource Center about the situation. Village of Mamaroneck Mayor Tom Murphy went to social media to ask the community for funds and donations to help the families involved in the fire. Residents responded by donating $37,000 in cash and gift cards. The funds aim to secure the first month’s rent and security deposit for future housing, but finding affordable housing in Mamaroneck is a big challenge.
