Media Alert: "Voluntine's" Day - SOLVE's Portland Business District Cleanup (Photo) - 02/13/24

***Media Advisory – All Media Are Invited***

What: Portland Business District Cleanup at The Old Church on SW 11th

When: Wednesday, February 14, from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM.

Where: 1422 Southwest 11th Avenue Portland, OR 97201 | Map Link

Event Description: Join SOLVE for a community-driven initiative to transform and beautify downtown Portland. This will be a celebration of love for our community in honor of Valentine's Day and Oregon's birthday on February 14th.

Why: Portland's downtown is the heartbeat of our city and keeping it clean is vital for our economy and environment. Litter poses a significant threat to our community's well-being, affecting the aesthetics and overall health of our streets, neighborhoods, and waterways. SOLVE's mission is to create opportunities for individuals and businesses to give back to their communities and play a critical role in maintaining the beauty and integrity of our city from the harmful effects of trash. Together, we can create a cleaner, more inviting downtown that reflects our pride in the city and care for our community.

Media Crews: Arrive by 12:45 p.m. in front of the Old Church Concert Hall, right off Clay Street, to see approximately 80 volunteers of all ages checking in, collecting their cleanup supplies, receiving a safety speech and event debrief, and then heading out in groups to pick up litter in the surrounding area. The event will run from 1 pm to 3 pm, with volunteers expected to spread throughout the southwest downtown area. Nothing Bundt Cakes and See's Candies will provide sweet treats for volunteers as they complete the cleanup.

This event will have plenty of visuals of volunteers picking up litter, making for great community packages, VOs, and VOSOTS.

Available interviewees will include: 

  • Kris Carico, Chief Executive Officer, SOLVE
  • Josh Keller, Development Director, SOLVE

Visit the Portland Business District Cleanup webpage on the SOLVE website for more information.
