The SIDs have engaged with CleanTurn to clean and sanitize the eleven portable toilets stationed downtown for people experiencing homelessness. CleanTurn is a locally-owned and operated commercial cleaning company.
The company fulfills an important mission: To reduce the social costs associated with poverty, recidivism, substance abuse, and chronic unemployment through an innovative and self-sustaining business focused on leveraging market opportunities
in the service industry.

As mentioned in the article above, the SIDs are in the process of getting portable sinks placed downtown so that people in need have access to basic hygiene and help prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Funding for this project comes from the United Way of Central Ohio and the City of Columbus.
