Community Care during COVID-19: Call to Action

Our Arleta Triangle Community Care Cabinet needs your help.

COVID-19 has made it harder for neighbors to connect in our usual places, including at the Arleta Triangle in the Mt. Scott Arleta Neighborhood. Last year, with a small grant from Southeast Uplift (our neighborhood coalition office), we installed some COVID-relief amenities including a vandal-proof hand sanitizer dispenser, a safely-distanced bench for resting, and a cupboard for supplies for our neighbors in need. Now, as we enter our second year of the pandemic, our community members are still in need and more volunteers can help us meet it. 

If you want to help us keep basic hygiene and warming supplies available to our neighbors, please click the link below to let us know your availability and how to contact you. Thank you for being part of the neighborhood and supporting each other.

Items that are welcome include toiletries, garments, first aid, and food items. Travel-size items are the most helpful. Please no worn used clothing unless like-new!

Neighbors For Clean Air Mapping Tool

Image of Potential Diesel Impact Locator Mapping Tool with Mt. Scott-Arleta featured

Neighbors for Clean Air launched a mapping tool to track nearby construction in real time and help neighborhoods better understand the relationship between potential diesel emission sources and local development. The mapping tool calculates the square feet of construction area and the number of floors based on building permits.

Clackamas and Multnomah Counties rank in the top 5 percent of counties nationwide for ambient diesel particulate concentrations. While on-road/highway vehicles, rail, industrial, commercial, and other sources are significant contributors, it is estimated that as much of as 65% of Portland Metro emissions sources come from non-road vehicles (construction, agricultural, marine, etc.).

Unlike Washington and California states, non-road vehicles do not have to meet diesel exhaust standards in Oregon and many older diesel engines operate within our state. Fine particulates from diesel emissions represent a community health risk with a disproportionate impact to historically underserved people. Neighbors for Clean Air will connect you to actions to help improve air quality and keep our community healthy.

Join the Neighbors for Clean Air for a free online seminar on December 10th to learn about expanding air quality monitors and learn more about the issue.
