On Wednesday, October 16, 2019, the Massachusetts House of Representatives honored the Intl. WeLoveU Foundation with a Citation for their devotional volunteerism. The President of the Intl WeLoveU Foundation East Coast Region and over a dozen WeLoveU volunteers from different regions in the state traveled to the Massachusetts State House in Boston for this special occasion.

Massachusetts State Representative Liz Miranda from the 5th Suffolk District awarded WeLoveU in this special way after working together at the Ceylon Park cleanup last month. Previously, WeLoveU had met with State Representative Liz Miranda a couple of times during her community office hours to discuss ways to serve the neighborhood in her respective district.

The recognition bestowed on the WeLoveU Foundation is a result from the volunteers dedicated efforts in Massachusetts over the past couple of yearsAfter being formally presented and welcomed with an applause, each WeLoveU volunteer was introduced to their respective district state representative. Conversations began with the representatives asking to meet again to work together in the future.

The volunteers’ motivation to maintain a clean environment stems from their strong belief of taking care of the global village with the heart of a mother. The WeLoveU Foundation and its volunteers are keen to remaining true to the core values that it was founded on by Chairwoman Zahng Gil-jah. In each activity, the organization aspires to work with this mindset for its communities.

On March 19, 2019, the International WeLoveU Foundation received a Certificate of Recognition at the Pennsylvania State Capitol Building. About 30 volunteers from the organization traveling from New York, Connecticut and Philadelphia met in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania for the special occasion. 

This milestone came about as a result of years of selfless volunteerism on behalf of the volunteers. Their enthusiasm in participating in these activities stems from the Chairwoman’s example who founded the WeLoveU Foundation. Long before its establishment, Chairwoman Zahng Gil-jah has personally interacted with and cared for the needs of the global village. In the same way, WeLoveU volunteers along the East Coast strive to work with the same love and compassion for its communities. 

WeLoveU Is Recognized During House and Senate Sessions

During the House Session, the WeLoveU Foundation was acknowledged on the floor as guests of Pennsylvania State Representative Jared Solomon from the 202nd District. He has history working with WeLoveU on several occasions spanning the last three years. On the House floor, he expressed his gratitude for the efforts of the volunteers during events such as tree planting, street cleanups and restoration projects of recreation centers in his district. 

“I have never met a group so dedicated, upbeat, and eager to serve. They embody everything that civic pride is and should be; a zest for doing good and improving the lives of those less fortunate. If every group was like the WeLoveU Foundation our world would be a much better place. I would work side-by-side with the WeLoveU Foundation, anytime and anywhere,” said State Representative Jared Solomon. 

Once the morning session concluded, John Power, the Vice President of the WeLoveU Foundation delivered a speech. Thoughtfully, he expressed his thanks to the Chairwoman of WeLoveU for starting an organization that has impacted the lives of many people even in the Pennsylvania community. He went on to explain today’s event is in recognition of WeLoveU’s two awards from the Pennsylvania U.S. House of Representatives and State Senate for volunteer excellence throughout the state. 

In the afternoon, the Senate Session began. Pennsylvania State Senator Christine Tartaglione awarded the WeLoveU Foundation while on the Senate floor. 

She said, “The International WeLoveU Foundation makes a meaningful and lasting impact on the lives of those who live in the community.”

Looking Ahead

At the beginning of the year, WeLoveU volunteers pledged to make 2019 a year filled with greater happiness and prosperity for the global village, surpassing last year’s activities. Today’s Certificate of Recognition only serves as a reminder that their efforts do not go unnoticed. The foundation is extremely thankful for such recognition from the State Capitol.

The WeLoveU Foundation and its volunteers along the East Coast aspire to continue working straight ahead towards their goal of fostering a sustainable environment with love.
