Cleveland High School Community Cleanup


​Join SOLVE and the Cleveland High School PTA from 9 AM – 11AM on Saturday, April 17 for a community cleanup around the school campus. We'll be walking the blocks surrounding the school, nearby streets and field area, picking up litter in preparation for welcoming the community back to hybrid learning.

This community cleanup is family-friendly, and volunteers of all ages will find the event fun and rewarding. Hauling, disposal and recycling services will be donated by Cleveland High School.

Please join us and help us make Portland a little bit cleaner. We hope to see you there!
