Parkrose Litter Patrol
A Community betterment program brought forth through a collaboration of efforts from;
Gilhooligan's Bar & Grill, Paying It Forward Store, Historic Parkrose, Parkrose Business Association, and Parkrose Hardware
Announcement: Launch of the Parkrose Litter Patrol
Gilhooligan's Bar and Grill has partnered with Paying it Forward Store (501c3 non-profit), Historic Parkrose, Parkrose Business Association and Parkrose Hardware to form a volunteer driven litter patrol program to routinely monitor and clean up high traffic, problematic areas in our neighborhood. We believe, by increasing progress-minded foot patrols coupled with an earnest desire for curbside appeal via trash and debris removal, We can peel away the ugly scars that make these areas desireable "blind spots" for the corrupt and criminal element.
We have identified the area within the following streets as our target area. From north to south the boundaries are 102nd st. to 122nd street. East to west the boundaries are Airport way and Prescott.
Beginning Monday January 9, 2017 and most every Monday thereafter, we will dispatch Teams (a team is 2 or more people) of volunteers from Gilhooligans Bar and Grill between the hours of noon and 7pm. Volunteers will be easily identified in their safety Orange or Green reflective vests, work gloves, and giant trash bags in tow. Additionally, each volunteer team will have a quality flashlight, Back up trash bags, weatherproof (laminated) information cards listing our areas emergency service providers with detailed contact instructions, and a cell phone. At no time are our volunteers to engage in behavior or actions contradictory to those of a good Neighbor. at the end of the patrol, The volunteers will return to Gilhooligans, Place the collected trash in the dumpster outside and any recyclables in the appropriiate bin(s), After stowing their gear for the next group of volunterers, they are invited to partake in refreshments and snacks provided by the restaurant.
