Happy Volunteers Offer Their Service to the Community and to God
Bronx, NY– The Youth Universal Peace Federation (UPF) USA, finished their second service project on Saturday, June 27, at Bronx Park East. Three motivated volunteers kindly served at this event. Jorge Cuello Espinosa, National Director, Youth UPF, took some time to share some of what Youth UPF envisions to its volunteers.
Parks are supposed to be places of serenity. However, Bronx Park East has side trails that were created by people who may have gone into the woods to do inappropriate behavior. To create one straight path, volunteers carried branches and placed them on top of these side trails.
Then, only one solid, clean trail was created with thick tree branches along its sides. Special soil was used to create a smooth path. Although Youth UPF volunteers stayed from 9:00am – 11:00am, more park cleaning was done by other organizations and volunteers at Bronx Park East.
Rev. Jé Hooper, a volunteer from the Bronx, shared his passion for working with young people and for the teachings of Dr. Sun Myung Moon, Founder of UPF. Rev. Hooper was appointed as an Ambassador For Peace (AFP) by Mrs. Tomiko Duggan, Director of Public Affairs, UPF International, in Washington D.C.
Calisher Perry, a volunteer from the Bronx, also expressed her interest in working with young people and giving back to the earth.
Luz Cuello, the mother of Jorge Cuello Espinosa, kept a sincere smile throughout the entire event. Her happy nature was evident through the pictures taken.
Jorge is very grateful for his mother’s help and all of the volunteers. Youth UPF is excited for its next event will to be held on July 11th at the same location.
