Salvation Army Cascade Division, Downtown Portland Clean & Safe, and Central City Concern Clean Start team up on Friday for One Block at a Time clean-up project

Portland metro area residents, and the city’s visitors, would be interested in learning about how local agencies are teaming up on Friday, Dec. 9, from 9 a.m. to noon to clean up an ‘eye sore’ in Downtown Portland.  About 24 volunteers are expected to be onsite to help with various cleaning duties, from trash collection to power washing and graffiti removal, at the Salvation Army Female Emergency Shelter (SAFES), located at 30 SW 2nd Ave., on the corner of Burnside and 2nd Avenue in Portland.

Quotes from clean-up project partners:

“We are on target for a successful, first-time One Block at a Time clean-up event with an amazing team of volunteers,” said Justin Moshkowski, Executive Director of SAFES and West Women’s and Children’s Shelter.  “We are praying for good weather so we can clean up the trash and graffiti.”

“Our team often responds to safety and service calls in the area and wanted to give back to the community they serve. This pilot project was initiated by our Clean & Safe Public Safety Coordinators as a way to serve the Salvation Army shelter and community. The entire team is excited to volunteer on Friday,” noted Steve Wytcherley, Operations Director of Downtown Portland Clean & Safe.
