The goal of this clean-up is to increase the safety, hygiene, and beauty of the Lents Town Center by cleaning up litter around the town center, as well as build community! This clean-up is part of the Fall in Love with Lents community weekender, which includes a “Really Really Free” Community Night Market, a local Artist Festival, a Community Connections Luncheon… and more!

Come to join us for the clean-up and stay for the festivities to follow!

Date: & Time: Saturday, February 12, 2022.

Time: 8:00AM – 10:00AM

Meeting Location: Refuge Coffee Shop (MAP LINK)
The clean-up area is subject to the total number of volunteers, but we plan to start at Refuge Coffee Shop in Lents Town Center and disperse in small groups from Lents Town Center outward along major roadways (Foster, 92nd, MUP). Outer boundaries of clean-up: 88th/101st, Holgate and Duke.

What’s Provided: High vis-safety vests, work gloves, trash grabbers, and trash bags will be provided by SOLVE. Restrooms are available at local businesses. Individual water bottles and snacks will be available.

What to Bring: Please come wearing a mask, and dress for the weather! We recommend wearing comfortable closed-toed shoes, and to bring a filled reusable water bottle and snacks (in a backpack if you’d like to stay hands-free).

Safety: Please note that COVID safety is a top priority. Hand sanitizer, masks, and gloves will be provided. We encourage community interaction but please socially distance from parties that are not directly part of your pandemic “pod” to avoid sharing germs.

Parking: Lents Town Center can be accessed via TRIMET on the bus (lines 10, 14, 17, and 73) or via MAX (Green), as well as by car. Free parking is available in the adjacent neighborhood, or paid parking is available across from Refuge Coffee Shop at Planet Fitness.

Restroom: Restroom access is available through local businesses and events, locations available upon sign-in.

Accessibility: This event is partially accessible, however, please communicate any physical restrictions upon sign-in so we can make sure you are assigned to an ADA accessible area.
