Beautification Committee Wants You!

Are you fond of cleaner streets and sidewalks? Are you irked by rampant litter? Come help us to beautify our neighborhood!

On the same day as the Eliot Neighborhood Annual Clean-Up, we will hold our second Eliot Litter Pick Up volunteer event. In March, more than 60 volunteers of all ages, from our neighborhood and around Portland showed up on a rainy, windy day to collect 410 pounds of litter and transport them to the city dump.

Please join us 11 AM – 2 PM on Saturday, May 22nd! We will provide bags and supplies as well as refreshments to keep ourselves motivated.
