Sunnyside Shines creates Business Community Disaster Program


After the devastating fire that destroyed six Sunnyside businesses along Queens Boulevard in December, Sunnyside Shines is creating a new “Business Community Disaster Program.”

The program can be activated by the BID’s board of directors’ executive committee in response to events that significantly impact the businesses in the neighborhood.

The Sunnyside Shines Fire Relief Fund, which raised money to respond to the fire, is the program’s first activation.

As of December 27, the relief fund raised more than $150,000 to provide emergency short-term relief.
