Fifty WeLoveU Volunteers Tidy up North King Street in Virginia

North King Street Clean up

Cleaner City, Cleaner World!

On Sunday, January 27, 2019, more than 50 volunteers from various backgrounds joined together to clean up North King Street in Hampton, Virginia. In this worldwide effort to raise awareness about environmental protection, volunteers targeted a one-mile stretch along North King Street.

The start of every year is full of vitality, new opportunities, and most commonly—resolutions. It’s the same case for the International WeLoveU Foundation East Coast Region. In 2019, WeLoveU is planning and mapping out fresh and new ways to positively impact the global family. In spite of new ideas, there’s nothing like WeLoveU’s roots of carrying out volunteer service.

The volunteers working joyfully cleaned the area thoroughly and collected more than 200 bags of trash. The debris collected at this year’s cleanup ranged from items like bottles and mattresses to old tires and file cabinets, just to name a few. The total estimated weight of the debris from the cleaning frenzy is more than 7,000 pounds.

One Step at a Time

This cleanup was in partnership with the Hampton Clean City Commission and the Hampton Police Department. A local news station also supported the team by broadcasting WeLoveU’s efforts. By working with local agencies, WeLoveU can have better insight into the needs of the community. As a result, volunteers can work towards the same goal and work in unity. All the participants hope to inspire neighbors and families locally and globally to make any and every effort to maintain a cleaner city and overall—a cleaner world.

A cleanup of this size may be seen as small compared to the vast amount of land there is to clean. However, to WeLoveU volunteer’s, they’re motivated to help even in the slightest way.

Through these efforts, they’re working towards environmental protection in five main areas: clean water, oxygen, region, life, and descendants. These components make up the Clean WORLD Movement that WeLoveU has been working on for many years. This movement also works towards fulfilling the SDGs, specifically Climate ActionLife Below Water, and Life on Land.

    Wow! The before and after pictures are shocking, the volunteers did such a great job.
    The beginning of the article touched me a lot as well because here, an organization made it their resolution to help others for the new year where I never even thought of one that didn’t involve myself. It’s inspiring seeing people joyfully want to do good deeds around the world even if it seems like a small one, in reality, it is huge because it touches the lives of others. Thank you so much WeLoveU!

  21. I am originally from Hampton, VA and have seen this city grow in so many ways. I am truly move to see how much of an impact the WeLoveU Foundation is making to make the community clean and have so many of the youth involved.
