WeLoveU Foundation Celebrates One Year Keeping Comfort Tyler Park Clean

Uncategorized

Get your trash-pokers ready because volunteers of the International WeLoveU Foundation (IWLUF) have adopted Comfort Tyler Park in Syracuse.

The Adopt-a-Block program aims to clean the city of its litter and pollution. Adopt-a-Block is an initiative proposed by Syracuse Mayor Ben Walsh. “Obviously he’s heard from the residents the kind of issues they have environmentally—the kinds of trash, the water being polluted,” Brittany Boyd said. “By adopting a block, you can volunteer to take responsibility over your respective block or street by organizing cleanups, alongside city crew members, as frequent as at least once a month,” she added.

As for the IWLUF—a nonprofit founded in South Korea, focused on serving those in need and helping communities through volunteer-work—it’s been a year since its adoption of the streets bordering Comfort Tyler Park in Syracuse. Not only do they stick to picking up trash alone, but they are also known to have laid down mulch in the area and fix up its surrounding fence.

“All it takes is just a willing mind, hands, and feet,” said Joseph Seymour of the IWLUF.

The anniversary cleanup will be held on Sunday, July 21 from 9am to 11am, located at the park along East Colvin Street in Syracuse.
