WeLoveU Volunteers Work to Restore George Washington Carver Center

George Washington Carver Center

The George Washington Carver Center Is at the Heart of the Community

A countless number of families in Norristown, Pennsylvania turn to the George Washington Carver Center for recreation, education, and as a place for the youth to learn good character. The long-standing community center has been serving the community for the past 60 years.

On Sunday, March 10, 2019, more than 50 WeLoveU volunteers banded together for a cleanup. The volunteers efforts hope to keep the George Washington Carver Center a neighborhood staple for many more years to come. This activity differs from previous cleanups as it marks the beginning of a series of volunteer service activities at the community center.

Many Parts Working Together

Keeping in mind how dear the center is to the residents, WeLoveU volunteers prepared well. To tackle the tasks at hand, volunteers brought their brooms, shovels, rakes, trash bags and gallons of paint.

Before starting the multi-step cleanup, the participants split into smaller groups. The first thing on their to-do list was to then remove all signs of trash and litter around the community center. Other groups stepped in to fix a hefty list of things: cleaning and replacing gutters, repainting the front lobby, repairing roof leaks, and replacing ceiling tiles in the bathroom and leading up to the outside pool.

While working, WeLoveU volunteer’s efforts ran into the late afternoon. In total, they filled 60 bags of trash and leaves, summing up to about 1,700 pounds of trash. WeLoveU happily reported these results to the directors and staff members, who were on site at the time of this cleanup.

Future Projects in Norristown

The WeLoveU volunteers left feeling a sense of accomplishment. However, they’re not done yet, as they plan to return for another big project at the center this summer. This isn’t the group’s first time carrying out a multi-step project in Philadelphia. Last year, WeLoveU volunteers completed a two-stage revitalization project at Tarken Park.

WeLoveU continues its environmental protection efforts under the Clean WORLD Movement. To date, the movement is carried out in more than 500 regions. To provide a safe and sustainable environment, WeLoveU encourages people across the globe to work together.
