Opportunity Details

Downtown Portland Cleanup - The Benson Hotel

 



Portland is a strong, resilient city, but it needs help. Join SOLVE for a day of downtown litter cleanups to beautify our city, keep our waterways clean, and protect local wildlife from the harmful effects of trash. Enjoy the sights of downtown Portland and know that the work you are engaging in has many benefits for our community, our local businesses, and our environment! Please note that this event is a litter cleanup and will not include graffiti removal.

This event was made possible through support from Plaid Pantry. SOLVE also would like to give thanks to our partners at the Portland Business Alliance and the Portland Lodging Alliance.   

When: Wednesday, July 21, 2021
Staggered Check-In: Event check-in will run from 8:45 AM to 9:30 AM. Arrive any time during this window. This will allow for a smaller crowd than checking in all at once. The event will run through 11:30 AM.
Advanced Registration Required: Pre-registration is required! Please sign up (green button below) ahead of time so you can sign our electronic waiver to help avoid crowding during check-in.​
Meeting Location: Volunteers will meet at The Benson Hotel at 309 SW Broadway, Portland. Look for SOLVE signs and the check-in table. Volunteers will check-in and then spread out into the nearby parks and streets. MAP.
What's Provided: Heavy-duty garbage bags, litter grabbers, safety vests, and vinyl gloves are provided for all participants.
What to Bring: Please come wearing closed-toed shoes, and bring a backpack and a filled reusable water bottle. Observe social distancing throughout the cleanup. Masks are optional.

Parking: Paid parking available along nearby streets and parking garages.
Bathrooms: There will be no public restrooms available during this event. Please plan accordingly.
Accessibility: The check-in location will be in an area that is wheelchair accessible. The majority of the cleanup area is on city sidewalks that are wheelchair accessible.
Youth Volunteers: Youth are welcome if accompanied by an attentive adult. Youth volunteers ages 14-17 can come without their guardian if their guardian prints and signs a youth waiver form and the youth volunteer brings it with them. Find the link to the youth waiver form here. Youth Waiver Form

Don't forget to donate to Project C.A.R.E.S

The next time you stop for a cold drink, or a snack, don't forget to ask to donate to Project C.A.R.E.S! You can purchase a $1 donation slip at the counter and dedicate your gift to either non-profit. Together, we are taking care of Oregon!
