Here's a great article about a community cleanup we're helping in Portland...
The Northwest District Association is adding graffiti removal to this month's litter cleanup in Northwest Portland.
The neighborhood association is partnering with CleanScapes, a street maintenance company in Northwest Portland, to remove the graffiti during the NWDA's monthly litter cleanup on Saturday, May 14.
The graffiti cleanup will take place rain or shine from 9 to 10:30 a.m., and volunteers will meet at Umpqua Bank, 467 N.W. 23rd Ave. Anyone can join the effort to remove the graffiti and also pick up litter along Northwest 23rd Avenue.
Supplies and training will be provided, and volunteers will also be given pastries and coffee. To RSVP for the cleanup, email NWDA spokeswoman Mary Ann Pastene, and for more information visit the Northwest District Association website.
