MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. - The Mount Vernon Chamber of Commerce (MVCC) is offering office space at the Roosevelt Square Professional Building at 11 W. Prospect Ave. for businesses displaced by Hurricane Sandy.
The building is equipped with complimentary WiFi, fax machines and meeting rooms for businesses that have lost power due to the storm.
“The only reason that the MVCC exists is to advocate and promote the business community and when natural disasters occur that negatively impact the ability of hard working people to conduct basic business, then it’s our duty to utilize our resources and contacts to find a solution and we hope this provides some temporary relief," said MVCC president Frank Fraley.
Kenneth Plummer, whose office is in the building, said that offering the space to Mount Vernon businesses was an easy decision.
“We are very fortunate that the infrastructure and services of our facilities [were] unaffected during the storm," Plummer said. "A healthy and striving business community will only ultimately benefit our tenants and our building. It’s a win-win for everyone.”.
The building will be open on Saturday from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. and on Monday from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Plummer said that there is a chance the building will be opened more days. For more information, call 914-413-9839.
