¡Misión cumplida! | La semana pasada, los donantes del Fondo Alfonso López Chaar y Erica Ivers de López compartieron de manera virtual con el primer grupo de becados de esta iniciativa filantrópica, establecida en diciembre de 2019 en la Fundación Comunitaria de Puerto Rico.

Durante el encuentro, Alfonso y Erica escucharon los planes académicos de los y las estudiantes, y cómo están enfrentando los retos relacionados con la pandemia del Covid-19. Don Alfonso, por su parte, les felicitó por sus logros, al tiempo que animó al grupo a que "cuando tengan nuestra edad, puedan compartir lo que han recibido del cariño de la gente, durante el caminar de la vida".

Don Alfonso, quien fue alcalde de #Dorado desde 1972 hasta 1987, estableció el Fondo Alfonso López Chaar y Erica Ivers de López para otorgar becas a jóvenes residentes de Dorado con el fin de que comiencen o prosigan estudios postsecundarios en carreras afines con el #serviciopúblico (magisterio, criminología, justicia criminal, enfermería y otras). Al respecto, el presidente de la FCPR, el doctor Nelson I. Colón Tarrats, destacó que el “servicio público necesita reinventarse, transformarse, de manera profunda y radical”, y estos estudiantes alimentan “nuestra esperanza, de que podamos ir hacia eso”.

Las becas fueron concedidas a Alanis Rocca Malpica, bachillerato en Microbiología, UPR, Arecibo; Bryan J. Cruz Navedo, bachillerato en Contabilidad, UPR, Bayamón; y Jared Rosado Colón, bachillerato en Contabilidad, Universidad Politécnica, Hato Rey. ¡Felicidades!

MY BROTHER'S KEEPER Alliance for Peace: For a New Loíza

The Alliance for Peace: For a New Loíza has the goal of reducing violent incidents in Loíza and providing educational and employment alternatives that help guide youth human development. The alliance is made up of the Fundación Comunitaria de Puerto Rico, the Municipality of Loíza, Nuestra Escuela and Taller Salud. The initiative benefits young people 15 to 30 years old who live in the Pueblo, Medianía Baja and Medianía Alta neighborhoods of Loíza – neighborhoods where past personal and/or family quarrels limit youth’s ability to move freely because of potential security risks.
