Laundry Capital Co. LLC is hosting a memorial event to remember the victims of the January Twin Parks apartment fire on Saturday, April 16. From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Clean Rite Center, 1348 Southern Blvd., Bronx.
A memorial mural, commissioned by Laundry Capital and created by local artist group Tats Cru, will be unveiled. The mural will include a list of the names of the victims lost in the fire. Food will be provided by The Hip Hop Food Truck and $20 laundry cards, good for free loads of laundry, will also be provided to Twin Parks residents displaced by that fire.
On Jan. 9, at Site 4 of Twin Parks North West, a 19-story public housing building in the Bronx, a fire killed 17 residents and displaced hundreds more in the city’s worst fire disaster in 30 years.
