The Westwood Organized MEGA Project (WOMP) is an annual spring event aimed to bring UCLA students, staff, and faculty into their own backyard to unite UCLA and Westwood as a community.The project targets high-need areas of the Village for repair and beautification while creating a stronger “town and gown” relationship with the community.The third annual WOMP took place on Saturday, April 28, 2012 from 8:00AM to 2:00PM in the historic Westwood Village and North Westwood Village. Here are some some before and after images from WOMP taken by one of our Social Media & Marketing Interns, Annika Hammerschlag.
Volunteers refilled holes in some of the flowerbeds near sidewalks in Westwood.
Repainted lamp-posts with new signs encouraging residents to keep the neighborhood clean.
The empty lot near In-N-Out very familiar to students has now been cleared up!
Volunteers filled tree beds with decomposed granite.
