Assembly-member Mark Weprin Organizes Drive to Help Family of Floral Park Mother Killed In Gas Explosion

Assemblymember Mark S. Weprin (D-Little Neck) announced that he is calling on the Eastern Queens community to come to the aid of the family of Ghanwatti Boodram, who died in a tragic gas explosion that destroyed her home in Floral Park, Queens. “When three children lose their mother, it is truly a tragedy,” said Mr. Weprin. “We must ensure that the mourning husband and three young sons have the full support and assistance of the entire community.”

Assemblymember Weprin is asking those who can help to bring gift cards or gift checks to Public School 115Q, the Glen Oaks School, where the late Ghanwatti Boodram’s sons are students. Janet Guzman, a staff member at Public School 115, will be collecting everything for the family. Her telephone number is (718) 831-4010.
