Paint the Town Green Litter and Graffiti in Lents and Brentwood Darlington

Lents and Brentwood-Darlington Cleanup

Join KINK, Metro, the City of Portland Graffiti Abatement program, and SOLVE  for the Paint the Town Green clean up event on Saturday, June 1st from 9 am to 1 pm.  We'll be cleaning up litter and graffiti in various SE neighborhoods throughout the morning, and we're looking for volunteers to join us. You don't have to live in those neighborhoods to help clean them up! We'll provide the supplies along with snacks AND lunch: you provide the energy. We will meet at Glenwood Park for breakfast snacks and a quick training, then start the clean up on 82nd.  At the end of the clean-up, we will have lunch back at Glenwood Park.  Sign up for Paint the Town Green today!
