Video: In Sunnyside, Neighbors Helping Neighbors is a Long-Time Tradition

For nearly 40 years, volunteers at the Sunnyside Community House have cooked a family-style meal every Wednesday night and shared it with neighbors in need.

“The most rewarding part of the Wednesday meals has been my expanded sense of who my neighbors are,” said John Mayer, board chair of Sunnyside Community House. “I see some folks I’m friends with now who I regularly walked past behind Stumptown down the street.”
