More than 250 International WeLoveU Foundation volunteers from New Jersey, Maryland and the Philadelphia area on Sunday teamed up with state Rep. Jared Solomon to carry out cleanups outside Northeast High School and on 100-plus streets throughout the 202nd Legislative District.
Volunteers removed about 4,000 pounds of litter and debris from the community and delivered care packages to 40 elderly neighbors.
Solomon presented a citation to WeLoveU, adding his belief that cleaner neighborhoods are safer neighborhoods. Offering thanks to the volunteers were Joe Bell, vice president and market manager of Beasley Media Group, and Alex Post, WeLoveU’s director of global partnerships.
Solomon and WeLoveU have partnered since 2017 on initiatives such as snow removal, cleanups on Castor Avenue and at Tarken Recreation Center and creation of the WeLoveU Park at Cranford, Loretto and Magee avenues.
