Opportunity Details

Urgent Need Cleanup Event at NE 33rd and Sunderland

Join SOLVE and our valued outreach partner, Dignity Village, in cleaning up large concentrations of trash and debris along NE 33rd!

SOLVE defines some cleanup areas as sites with a high concentration of litter that poses a threat to public safety and environmental quality. This cleanup is not family-friendly or suitable for anyone under the age of 18 due to an increased presence of hazardous materials. Safety guidelines will be put in place before the cleanup begins.
