On Friday, June 30 we held another LoveOne Trash Extravaganza out in Clackamas. Our LoveOne #trashteam brought together 20 people with lived experience of homelessness alongside our partners at Metro and Solve to clean up a whole lot of garbage. We filled 3 x 40 yard dumpsters (~14,000-18,000 pounds of trash) in under 3 hours. It was wild! It was also hot, fun, challenging and provided a space to build relationships and take pride in accomplishing a giant task as a team.
Thank you to Clackamas County, Oregon for providing the dumpsters and trash disposal. And thank you to Central City Concern’s Clackamas County LEAD team for joining us.
