Senator Klein Helps Deliver Bundle of Refrigerators to Sack Wern Houses

State Senator Jeff Klein, New York City Housing Authority Chair and CEO Shola Olatoye, Assemblyman Marcos Crespo, and Councilwoman Annabel Palma joined tenants of the Sack Wern Houses to announce the delivery of hundreds of new refrigerators last week.

The upgrade comes after Senator Klein secured $200,000 in funding for the more than 370 appliances.

“New York City public housing residents deserve to live in clean, safe homes, and I have been proud to work towards a reinvestment in the New York City Housing Authority” the senator said.

Listening to residents’ concerns regarding the previously the badly-worn appliances, Senator Klein worked to ensure that the agency received the resources necessary to deliver new ones, partnering with the NYCHA chair to ensure this.

“NYCHA is focused on improving quality of life for residents across our city – and this collaborative effort in The Bronx is delivering for Sack Wern residents,” said Chair and CEO Olatoye. “Thanks to a strong partnership with Senator Klein, Sack Wern residents are receiving high-quality, brand-new refrigerators – an upgrade that should show this community we are investing in them and the next generation of public housing.”

The roofs were replaced on all 7 buildings at Sack Wern Houses last year and there is currently a comprehensive effort underway to resurface the parking lot at the development.

The improvements come as part of NextGeneration NYCHA, the housing authority’s ten-year plan to ensure the financial stability of New York City’s public housing while creating safer, cleaner, and more connected communities.
