Litter Cleanup

High Needs Cleanup Event at SE Powell and 87th




Please join together with SOLVE and community members for a cleanup in a high-need area along SE Powell Blvd. During this cleanup, you will work with SOLVE staff in a small group to clean up piles of trash around Powell. This cleanup is for people 18 and over that are comfortable working on a project that has a higher presence of biohazards than a standard SOLVE cleanup. SOLVE staff will guide volunteers during the cleanup to be as safe as possible while we work.
Together, we can make a powerful impact.
