Clean Up ‘Cuse 2014: North Salina Street

Written by admin  • April 15, 2014

This weekend, we coordinated a large-scale spring cleaning of North Salina Street in participation with the Syracuse’s Clean Up ‘Cuse! Over 100 volunteers showed up to pick up litter, weed, and remove brush. Thanks to all the organizations, volunteers, property and business owners that made this event possible!

Call for mentors!

Written by admin  • April 10, 2014

We are looking for a team of advisors to provide guidance and support to our seven ‘UP Start Syracuse’ entrepreneurs. Mentors are not required to have started their own business, but need to feel comfortable providing productive expertise and insight around topics relevant to starting and sustaining a new business. If this is something you would like to be a part of, please contact Sarah Pallo at spallo@northsideup.org or (315) 299-8228 x 17!

Clean Up Cuse 2013

Clean Up ‘Cuse is an annual community beautification initiative that coincides with Onondaga County Resource Recovery Agency’s (OCRRA) countywide Earth Day clean up.

On April 12th, we’re organizing efforts to align with the 2014 effort! From 9:00 AM-1:00 PM, we’ll facilitate clean-up activities along the N. Salina Street corridor between the 300 and 900 blocks, including green spaces, triangle parks, and parking lots with special emphasis on sidewalks, litter removal, and weeding. Various property and business owners, Greater North Salina Business Association (GNSBA) board members, and community organizations will take charge of an individual block or area along North Salina Street.

All volunteers will be provided gloves, trash bags, snacks, and t-shirts. To volunteer with Northside UP’s effort, sign up HERE. Questions? Please call 315-299-8228 ext. 11 or email jlogan@northsideup.org.

We hope to see you there!

Video: Monu Chhetri

Written by admin  • March 10, 2014

Adam Sudmann recently shared an inspiring video about one of the My Lucky Tummy chefs, a young woman named Monu Chhetri:

“I’m a deaf refugee and I was born in Bhutan, but raised in a refugee camp in Nepal. Now me and my family live here in Syracuse, NY… I really love teaching the deaf refugees, so much so that I go and find them. I go to their houses and pull them out and take them under my wing.”

The video was produced and edited by Ross Taylor, www.rosstaylor.com.
