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 through the Adopt One Block initiative to assisting with bagging and hauling large piles of abandoned or discarded waste. Equipment can be provided by Adopt One Block or the SNA depending on the activity.
To learn more and get on our cleanup mailing list, please contact Vincent Dawans, SNA Cleanup Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Groves Church has generously opened up their shower facilities for houseless neighbors to use on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1-5PM and Saturdays from 2-6PM.
