Community Clean Up Day A Great Success!
A big THANK YOU to everyone who helped make Community Clean Up Day a great event this year!
Thank you to all of our amazing event partners for coming out to Lake Oswego and participating:
- Bike Farm
- Community Warehouse
- Habitat ReStore
- Republic Services
- Tools 4 Troops
We will post details about how much they collected as soon as they get a chance to sort their donations and waste collected!
Thank you to Scoop Handmade Ice Cream for being on site to feed our hungry volunteers and those dropping off donations.
This event could not have run as smoothly as it did without the over 50 volunteers that we had helping. Residents, Sustainability Advisory Board members, and huge contingents from the Lakeridge and LO football teams were on hand to help unload cars, keep traffic moving, entertain us, and do all the heavy lifting. THANK YOU VOLUNTEERS!!!
Finally, a big thank you to the Lake Oswego community for donating many valuable items to our event partners. Your donations make a huge difference to the Portland Metro community and to these organizations that assist them. Your generosity was greatly appreciated by everyone.
This event is free for Lake Oswego residents, courtesy of Community Clean Up vouchers from Metro.
