To recognize the efforts of our exceptional team at The Doe Fund, we talked to three members of our “Ready, Willing, and Able” team about their work and their invaluable contributions to the neighborhood. In these candid conversations, we explored what they do, how they find joy in their roles, and how their work creates positive change in both their lives and for the Downtown Brooklyn community. 

Thank you to the leadership team at The Doe Fund for their assistance with this project.

The Doe Fund team provides year-round supplemental sanitation services, including sweeping, graffiti removal, pressure washing, and snow removal services to key commercial corridors in the district.  Without them, Downtown Brooklyn wouldn’t be the thriving 24/7 neighborhood it is today.
