Hello my friends,
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
The city of Portland has placed hand-washing stations and porta-potties throughout the metro area that are cleaned only every three days. Unfortunately, fewer than 35% of the port-o-potties placed are equipped with hand-washing stations.
Hygiene4All has had to put a temporary hold on our much larger projects due to the "Stay Home - Stay Safe" order that was passed by our governor. In the meantime, our unhoused neighbors are at more risk than ever each day. We are proposing a much smaller project during the COVID-19 Pandemic to help those most in need and to further bridge the gap between the housed and unhoused.
Our proposal is to begin an attended port-o-potty and hand-washing station that will be sanitized after EACH use.
The city of Portland supports our efforts to:
Create a mini version - one location of the Hygiene Hub that will allow us to:
Sanitize the port-o-potty between each use
Sanitize the hand-washing station between each use
Distribute foaming soap and paper towels.
Model social distancing and cleaning protocols
Distribute food that doesn't require cooking
Take requests for items needed/medical attention needed - pass on to appropriate parties
Share critical information such as: list of food, first aid, and medical help, as well their times of operation, addresses, and contact information
