Since 2001, Sunnyside neighbors have come together to re-paint a sunflower at the intersection of SE 33rd and Yamhill. Sunnyside Piazza is Portland’s second oldest intersection repair project, which was organized by residents, originally in partnership with City Repair. Being neighbors of the intersection, Portland Street Art Alliance (PSAA) has managed the annual repainting activities since 2012. This year, the Sunnyside Neighborhood Association (SNA) is partnering with PSAA to spearhead the project and carry the torch for bringing back the neighborhood landmark. We are asking our community to help support the framework of this project by applying for the permits, purchase of paint, and other expenses that will occur. The SNA and PSAA would be very appreciative of your contribution to our GoFundMe fundraiser. Please follow along with the Sunnyside Piazza Facebook page for up-to-date details and ways to get involved.
Members of the Sunnyside Neighborhood Association are actively engaged in trash pickup and other cleanup activities throughout the neighborhood. Volunteers can participate in a number of ways including from walking a prescribed route and picking up small litter and debris to assisting with bagging and hauling large piles of abandoned or discarded waste. Equipment can be provided by the SNA.
To learn more and volunteer for a shift please contact Vincent Dawans – email@example.com.
