Sunnyside Graffiti Cleanup Day: Sept. 11

Aug. 30, 2010 By Christian Murray

The Sunnyside United Neighborhood Network (SUNN) is holding its fall graffiti cleanup event on Saturday, September 11, at 10 am. Volunteers will meet outside of the Sunnyside Reform Church on Skillman Ave and 48th Street.

The entire neighborhood is encouraged to volunteer and in past events more than 100 people have turned out.

Volunteers are typically split into groups, with each group responsible to clean up a particular section of the neighborhood. Each group will clean or paint over graffiti on walls, store gates and public fixtures.

SUNN supplies the paint and supplies; volunteers from the community supply the elbow grease.

For further information, please call SUNN at 646-298-8669 or visit the website:
