Middlesex, NJ — On Sunday, May 26, 2024, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., a total of 66 dedicated volunteers of the International WeLoveU Foundation [hereinafter WeLoveU] teamed up with 89 Amazon fulfillment volunteers to beautify Mountainview Park in Middlesex, New Jersey. The joint effort aimed to promote environmental protection and community service aligning with WeLoveU’s shared values of sustainability and improving local communities. The beautification project helped enhance the park’s greenery and natural surroundings by removing trash or debris that could eventually make its way into the Raritan River and, from there, the vast Atlantic Ocean. Volunteers removed 900 pounds of trash, contributing to a cleaner and more welcoming space for the neighborhood.

While volunteers rolled up their sleeves to spruce up the park, the event also included face painting, games, Amazon gift raffles and food for the community to enjoy. The cleanup is part of WeLoveU’s Clean WORLD Movement, an environmental initiative the foundation has led since 2009. Volunteers clean polluted cities, parks, mountains, rivers, and seas to promote a clean world for present and future generations. Since its inception, WeLoveU’s Clean WORLD Movement has reached 58 countries, with over 1,600 cleanups and more than 250,000 participants.

“Amazon takes pride in setting local roots in the community we live and work,” explained Kaushik Kashyap, Senior Operations Manager at Amazon. “We have been fortunate to build a great partnership with the WeLoveU Foundation in volunteering and supporting the community here in Middlesex and we are happy to be donating $18,000 for a really good cause.”

“Litter is a problem affecting our marine life, air quality, and water at an alarming rate,” explained WeLoveU’s Executive Director, B.J. Hu. “As dumping and littering is caused by people, we should work together to act towards a solution. WeLoveU is hopeful and excited to work with Amazon’s volunteers today to help make a positive change for our environment and inspire others to also join future cleanup efforts.”
