We know that Portland is a strong and resilient city, and this is an opportunity to come together to make a positive difference in the health and cleanliness of our community. Join the recurring volunteer movement to beautify our city's streets, reinvigorate the downtown, and prevent unwanted litter from entering our waterways and environment.
