Hello community,

We need you on Saturday, September 18th to help us clean up the first of many neighborhoods!

With the massive amount of inquiries to volunteer we figured it’s time to start utilizing that support in other ways. So we teamed up with Solve to put together this clean up event starting at King Elementary at 10am, and pick up trash along MLK Blvd and close surrounding areas.

We also want to incentivize your efforts!  So we partnered with Pizza Schmizza to provide vouchers to every volunteer, which can be redeemed for two slices of pizza and a soft drink/pint of beer at 7th and NE Broadway location (one of three Black-owned Pizza Schmizza locations in Portland).

Sign up you and your youths (13 and older) to be a part of this much needed neighborhood clean up by clicking the “Sign Up Here” button below.  It’ll take you to the Taking Ownership PDX website homepage where you will see more details and a link to sign up.

See you all there!
