From 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Oct. 29, a group of PCC students, staff, faculty and community stakeholders are joining together to clean up the area surrounding the Southeast Campus. Campus and local leaders encourage the public to join them as they make an impact.BIG Community Clean Up Flyer, shares date, time and location of the event.

Last year The BIG Community Clean Up involved over 70 volunteers and garbage weighing in at over half a ton was collected as part of the larger clean-up effort. This year, as was the case last year, groups will be assigned to help clean and ready the Harrison Park Elementary School garden, work with the City of Portland’s Office of Neighborhood Involvement’s Graffiti Abatement team to clean graffiti near the campus and surrounding businesses, and trash pick-up along SE 82nd Avenue and Division Street. The Southeast Campus, The Jade District, APANO, East Portland Neighborhood Office, Harrison Park School, Southeast ASPCC, and the SOLVE Organization will join in.

A portion of this work will be supported by a one-time grant from the East Portland Neighborhood Office’s Reuse, Recycle and Clean Up Program.

Free coffee from Old School Coffee and donuts from Krispy Kreme will be served to help get the cleaning crew ready for the day. Southeast Food Services Supervisor Scott Powell will provide a free lunch at the end of the event.

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity, off-topic items, or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
