Sunnyside & Woodside Mutual Aid

We are neighbors in Queens, New York, acting collectively to address community needs and take care of each other

Formed in Spring 2020 at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Sunnyside & Woodside Mutual Aid (SWMA) began as a response to our neighborhoods’ increasing and urgent need for grocery deliveries, medical deliveries, food relief, and community support. As the months passed, we have continued to seek out and build sustainable models to address needs in our neighborhoods through collective care.We value care and support community-based action outside of existing structures of governments, electoral politics, and charities. We acknowledge and sometimes collaborate with the many existing communities and organizations that call Sunnyside and Woodside home. We strive to embody the spirit of solidarity in everything we do.Read more about who we are and how we work together.
