Meeting Location: We will be meeting outside the Lan Su Chinese Garden Administrative Office on NW 2nd.
Address: 220 NW 2nd Avenue Portland, 97209
What to Bring: Volunteers are encouraged to bring any personal supplies that will help our resources go further such as garbage bags, work gloves, buckets, trash grabbers, etc. If you bring personal belongings wear a backpack so that you can pick up trash hands free. Wear closed-toed shoes and dress for the weather. Bring a rain jacket if the forecast calls for rain and wear sunscreen and a hat if it is sunny. This event will go on rain or shine. And it is also recommended that volunteers bring a re-usable water bottle to stay hydrated during the event.
What's Provided: SOLVE will provide trash grabbers, trash bags, work gloves, and high-vis vests.
