Cleanup volunteers, leaders sought

The Oregon nonprofit SOLVE is accepting applications from volunteers for community projects in support of the 30th annual Beach and Riverside Cleanup. The deadline for applications is Friday, June 27.

From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 27, volunteers across the state will engage in environmental clean-ups, including picking up trash, pulling invasive weeds, planting trees and taking care of watersheds.

There are opportunities for teachers to involve their students in service-learning activities any time between Sept. 22 and Oct. 3. Volunteer leaders will be provided with free project planning assistance and training, event flyers and pre-event publicity, online volunteer registration and cleanup project supplies. SOLVE also has a limited number of small grants of up to $100 for reimbursement of qualifying project expenses.  

Visit solveoregon.org to apply online or call SOLVE for a hard copy form at 503-844-9571, Ext. 317 or 1-800-333-SOLV.
