WOMP: Before & After

May 7th, 2012

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.

If you’d like to continue volunteering with community projects, check out One Bus, One Cause for similar opportunities and more! You can even suggest a site.
