Make your volunteer opportunity go twice as far!

SOLVE is excited to announce we are partnering with Transition Projects during our Friday, June 25 Pick It Up, Portland! events. Make your volunteer opportunity go twice as far by donating men's underwear and belts during this city-wide cleanup effort. We'll have donation drop bins at each of the six check-in locations. Help lift up our community, from many angles, on Friday, June 25. Are you interested in learning more Transition Project's donation drive?
