人民市场为波多黎各举办捐款活动

Katherine Esten Collegian记者 翻译:Alex Heroux 编辑: Shayue Qi 祁沙玥   十月十一日到十八日,人民市场在学生中心举办了一场捐款活动,为在飓风玛丽亚中受灾的波多黎各群众募集善款。 人民市场以“校园内最好的咖啡”闻名。他们呼吁大家参与“付值得的钱”活动。买咖啡时,客户可以选择支付市场价格,也可以选择支付更多,活动的收益将用于飓风玛丽亚导致的灾情的救援活动。 Jessica Benitez是市场营销、酒店管理和旅游专业的大四学生,她在人民市场工作三年了。 她说每个学期都有“付值得的钱”捐款活动,但这个学期活动应该帮助的对象非常明确。 “我们觉得波多黎各的灾情显然没有得到应有的重视,我们希望能以任何可能的方式帮助当地的商业和非营利组织。”Benitez说 ,“自然灾害刚发生的时候,各方提供了很多支持和援助,但是在摄像机离开并过了一段时间以后,人们便渐渐淡忘了这件事。这就是为什 么我们想继续支持(波多黎各)。” 在人民市场工作的生物学专业大四学生Freddy Ramos表示,筹集的资金将捐给“麻州西部 波多黎各联合会”。 “(麻州西部波多黎各联合会)是一个集合了政治领袖、非营利组织、企业所有人和社区积极分子的组织,他们在当地做了很多工作。该组织与地方、州和联邦政府官员合作,在必要的时候提供帮助,“ Ramos说,“波多黎各人口主要集中在低谷地区,比如Holyoke和Springfield。”他又补充说,人民市场通过这个组织捐款,是为了“确保善款能直接进入波多黎各。” 据CNN报道,在波多黎各,玛丽亚飓风导致的死亡人数已上升到48人,而在飓风袭击的三个星期后,波多黎各人“仍然需要每天面对食物,水和其他必需品短缺的问题,同时他们还得想办法解决家园被毁,商业停止经营带来的麻烦。”由于大面积的停电,许多社区仍 然处于孤立状态,道路被封,电话无法接通。 了解了捐款活动并且拜访了人民市场以后,大一心理学系的学生Victoria Lawrence表示,“(我)很高兴我们的校园能积极组织为美国自然灾害受害者捐款的活动,并为学生们提供了支持其他美国同胞的途径。” 最终收到的捐款金额仍在计算中。 “通常情况下我们能够募集到大量资金,”Benitez说,“我们并不是要人们支付20美元或者10美元,这很难实现。但是在99%的情况下,人们会愿意多付一点点(来支持捐款活动)。我们只是一家本地的小咖啡店,但是如果我们有能力用我们的咖啡来帮助在波多黎各的难民,那我们为什么不去做呢?”   联系Collegian记者Katherine Esten,可发邮件至kesten@umass.edu.
