Northeast Community Center faces sheriff’s sale

The Northeast Community Center at 2840 Holme Ave. was scheduled for a sheriff’s sale on Tuesday, according to its executive director, Stan Cohen.

The center owes $1.1 million to TD Bank that the center borrowed to build an addition, and the lender has foreclosed, Cohen said.

If the center is sold and eventually  closes, its 900 members and several local organizations will be unable to use its large pool, gym or fitness room and youngsters won’t be able to take part in its pre-school and after-school programs.
