Working Together for A Cleaner World

The International WeLoveU Foundation celebrated Father’s Day with a spin! On Sunday, June 16, 2019, Castor Avenue was abuzz with more than fifty volunteers. The group met to clean Castor Avenue in partnership with State Representative Jared Solomon. The 202nd district where Castor Avenue is located is one of the busiest streets. This collective effort is part of WeLoveU’s Clean WORLD Movement, an environmental protection effort.

“Every single day we make a decision about what our community looks like.” He continued, “If we’re going to be engaged or not, and every time we need to make a decision to pick up a piece of trash. We say ‘yes’ to our community. ‘Yes’ to a new day and our neighborhoods. Thank you so much. I love the relationship with WeLoveU.”

For some volunteers, this was their second time cleaning this area. Last fall, volunteers joined forces with the Oxford Circle neighborhood to fulfill the city’s goal of zero litter. Altogether, they collected 50 bags along Summerdale Avenue—parallel to Castor Avenue.

Starting around 11 a.m., the volunteers and Representative Solomon walked down the street with trash bags in hand. They picked up whatever they could on their path like plastic bottles, wrappers and litter obstructing the storm drains. In total, they filled 30 bags of trash. Throughout the course of the event, those residing on Castor Avenue took notice. While some waved from a distance, others stepped out of their homes to talk to the volunteers.

The WeLoveU Foundation volunteers have completed numerous cleanups throughout the City of Brotherly Love alongside Rep. Solomon. WeLoveU is happy to honor their continued relationship with him and look ahead to more opportunities to meet the needs of the city. At the Pennsylvania State Capitol where WeLoveU received a Certificate of Recognition, Solomon said, “You cannot rebuild, revitalize a community without strong partners.”

Working together to make the global village a better place is what the WeLoveU Foundation aspires to accomplish. In fact, one of the 17 Global Goals is Partnership for the Goals, which WeLoveU encourages everyone from government agencies to companies, and from institutions to individuals to put into practice to transform our world.

  1. I totally agree with representative Solomon “yes” to a new day for our community! That’s what the Intl. WeLoveU Foundation is doing all the time when they volunteer their efforts to supporting our community. This organization has set a great example for others. They collected 30 bags of trash, that’s a lot. It never seems like there’s much trash since it’s scattered along the community but when we come together we can make our community a clean & safe environment for our community.

    I commend all the volunteers who participated, they seem so joyful to help the community in Pennsylvania! It is a positive feeling to see a clean environment and make people feel tranquility. When the environment is full of waste, people continue to add to it, if it is clean they may not feel it is acceptable to throw garbage on the floor. The We Love You and its volunteer have given the community a gift. The first step I hope everyone in the community continue to take steps to help each other to make this world a better place! It is a first step in the right direction : )
