This is a call to all Portland nonprofits who care about keeping our streets and waterways clean! By Karisa Boyce
This is a call to all Portland nonprofits and volunteers who care about keeping our streets and waterways clean! Ocean Blue challenges you to a neighborhood clean up! We have done all the hard work of setting up the event and are ready to collaborate. You say you care about the city and that ain’t no trash talking, is it? So we challenge you to bring out your supporters who will register for $10. And then your legions of do-gooder trash warriors will collect as much crap as they can until the whistle is blown.
Which ever organization collects the most garbage wins a 50-50 split of the registration pot. Ocean Blue will receive the other 50% to continue to do it’s good work cleaning the waterways and educating the public about how the Ocean is a mirror reflection of our city streets. This Halloween litter cleanup is a collaborative community effort to clean the city streets before debris is carried into the Willamette and Columbia Rivers to our one world Ocean.
Anyone can participate for Free -OR- choose to Enter for $10 to represent a local nonprofit that is a part of the Willamette Week Give!Guide 2019
