Coalition and Association Leaders:
We are reaching out to you to share an exciting new resource available to ANYONE who has an interest in cleaning up the city we all love and call home.
AdoptOneBlock has been serving the Portland metro area for one year now, and we are growing FAST! We hope that our name is familiar to you, but if not, scroll down to learn more about our nonprofit.
Introducing the Community Cleanup Calendar!
As a community leader, we wanted you to be one of the first people we shared the details of our new Community Cleanup Calendar with so you can help us spread the word.
AdoptOneBlock does not host large cleanup events, but we wanted to support the wonderful events happening all over, through a ‘Community Cleanup Calendar‘. This calendar is a “matching application” for ALL cleanup events hosted by ANYONE in the community (across Oregon) who want to share their event, connecting anyone who wants to help with any individual or group wanting to host an event.
You do not have to be an AOB volunteer – this is meant to be a platform to promote events hosted by individuals, neighborhood groups, businesses, other nonprofits, and more!
Events posted on this calendar will reach an audience of 5,000 people within the AdoptOneBlock community.
NO COST OR MEMBERSHIP in AdoptOneBlock or any other organization is required or expected.
We kindly ask that you forward this new resource information and link with people who are interested in a cleaner and happier community.
WHO WE ARE!
AdoptOneBlock reimagines the way we make our city cleaner and happier. We enable anyone to care for the block they love the most, when and how they want with cleanup supplies we deliver to them for free. IMAGINE: no meetups, no commuting to volunteer, no scheduling to volunteer, no organizations to join, no fundraising.
Simply care for your favorite block and AdoptOneBlock will supply the tools, support, connection to community, and we make it FUN. Since launching one year ago, we have over 4900 Block Ambassadors (volunteers) committed to consistent cleanup of over 5700+ blocks and are recognized as a force for good in the state of Oregon.
Please reach out to Operations Manager, Olivia Langley, at Olivia@adoptoneblock.org if you have any questions.
Thank you and we look forward to working with you to make Portland cleaner and happier!
Be sure to join our interactive Facebook group for AdoptOneBlock. There, you can share your experience being a Block Ambassador. Create posts of your block cleanup photos, any questions that come up after signing up, ideas you have to help AdoptOneBlock grow, and anything else you’d like to discuss pertaining to adopting your block.
As always, you can help us the most by following our social media pages and giving us a ‘shout out’. Each newsletter we include tips below to make doing that easier.
THANK YOU for doing the good work that creates a cleaner and happier city!!
