A Lower East Side running group is auctioning off an original Hanksy portrait of President Donald Trump — painted with dog feces.

The street artist, whose Orchard Street mural of Trump's head atop a pile of dung was erased last month, sourced his materials from outside Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue, according to the Orchard Street Runners' website.

The 12-by-16-inch painting, valued at $1,500 and donated by the artist, will go to the highest bidder at a silent auction benefiting the Lower Eastside Girl's Club and taking place at Ludlow Studios Thursday evening, as first reported by Bowery Boogie.

There are also five copies of the painting that are not currently on sale, the event organizer told DNAinfo New York.

Since 2012, the annual fundraising event has raised enough money to send 50 girls from low-income families to summer camp upstate, organizer Joe DiNoto wrote on Facebook.

If you want to hang a Hanksy in your home and support a philanthropic cause, don't let germaphobia stand in your way — the painting's canine excrement is covered in several coats of varnish.

Other items up for bidding Thursday include two "Dump Trump" lawn signs by Hanksy, a "Learn to Sew Yourself Up" workshop with a board-certified ER doctor and a one month's supply of "deliciously healthy" bone broth.
