Weekend events: Groceries 4 Grout back-to-school drive and a Pedalpalooza ride

Saturday: Groceries 4 Grout back-to-school drive

Come support our families and kids in all different ways! Bring food and hygiene items for those in need, and also let’s celebrate back to school in person this year by bringing much-needed school supplies! You can also bring your redeemable bottles and cans for the Friends of Brooklyn Park Summer Youth Park Program.

More details on the drive event page.

Sunday: ESJ Pedalpalooza ride

The Equity & Social Justice Committee is hosting a queer & BIPoC organized mural viewing — this is inclusive of all paces of riders with an emphasis on whatever feels comfortable for you. This ride through inner SE Portland is 5 miles long and visits about 15 murals ending at Portland Cà Phê for drinks and to see Andy Chiu’s “Vietnam” mural inside. We think the loop will take 1 1/2 to 2 hours. We will of course be following current public health guidelines.
