E-Land Micronesia Resort Inc. president and chief executive officer Matthew Park and Kensington Hotel Saipan general manager Ginger Choi accepted the certificate of appreciation.

Cruz commended the generosity of E-Land, which was among the businesses that supported the 2019 Marianas March Against Cancer in May even though it was still recovering from Typhoon Yutu.

“Last year, they didn’t have this program [Environmental Youth Alliance], but they donated money to the Commonwealth Cancer Association to support those who are battling cancer here,” Cruz said.

As for the Environmental Youth Alliance, Cruz thanked the E-Land Group for “investing in our children by creating a competition that allows them to think critically about how they can be better environmental stewards.”

Cruz noted that E-Land is giving $500 a month to 11 environmental clubs in nine schools to implement their projects.

PSS also recognized Lindsay Ahn, corporate social responsibility facilitator for E-Land, for her exceptional leadership in putting the Environmental Youth Alliance together and forging a partnership between E-Land and PSS.
