The Old Northside Foundation (ONSF) has continued improving the neighborhood parks, Central Ave Public Art, corner plantings, and 16th Street plantings, thanks to Old Northsiders' donations to our fundraising campaign.
Most recently the ONSF replaced Great Oak Common's 25 year old alley side gate (see photo) and fence and stepped up the cleaning of the park's fountain. Thanks to Teen Works volunteers who helped beautify the ONS this summer with mulch supplied by the ONSF.
Teen Works is a program whose mission is to “empower teens to achieve excellence in college, career, and community.” For six weeks every summer, teen workers engage in the employment and college readiness program. The ONS was happy to have them making a difference in their community and ours!
