Today more than 70 volunteers from the International WeLoveU Foundation teamed up with Bridgeport’s Parks and Recreation Department to clean Seaside Park located at 1 Barnum Dyke in Bridgeport. Volunteers from various parts of the state gathered to collect trash throughout the park and beach, finding hidden trash along the rocky shoreline including three disposed tires, fencing, plywood, bottles, and food wrappers. This volunteer service activity is part of WeLoveU’s Clean WORLD Movement, a worldwide effort to raise awareness of the importance of environmental protection in the face of climate change.
“WeLoveU’s Chairwoman Zahng Gil-Jah has led people around the world to become active volunteers to take action and do whatever we can to protect our environment, as we continually see the effects of climate change become more serious,” said Rebecca Parker, spokeswoman of the International WeLoveU Foundation on the East Coast. “By educating and encouraging a community of volunteers, we believe the efforts put into our environment today will benefit those who will come in the future.”
