“Cool the summer, Care for workers under the scorching sun! (please tweet it to help more)”. This tweet from the WeChat official account of Jinjiang Economic Newspaper on July 22nd has attracted more than 160,000 readers and received great support from all walks of life.

At present, the service networks for “loving freezer” have been in operation in 19 towns such as Qingyang, Meiling, Luoshan, Chendai, Anhai, Xiyuan, and Cizao. They have been set up in areas concentrated with outdoor labors, including China Construction Bank, Agricultural Bank of China, Baxianshan Park, Zengjing bus station, Wudianshi traditional blocks, Wuyue Plaza, and Aixin grid shop (a non-profit charity mini store), etc. The "loving freezer” brings great convenience to the thirsty workers nearby. This service is available daily from 8:00 to 18:00 and is planned to last till August 31st.

Located at Wudianshi blocks, Zhuangyuan Street, the service station in Wanying Herbal Tea Hall attracts many tourists’ attention. At the entrance of the ancient building, a "loving freezer" with a blue public welfare poster is particularly conspicuous. Ms. Deng, a tourist, said, “Jinjiang is not only a beautiful city but also a place where people have beautiful hearts." 

“It's thirst-quenching, very comfortable!”, said Peng Xiuying, a sanitation worker of Wudianshi, after taking a bottle of water in a single gulp. She said happily that the water was free-offer. When she first heard it from the shop clerk, she was a little bit hesitant and couldn’t believe it was true.

As soon as the service station at the Aixin grid shop in Chongde Road started running, volunteer Zhu immediately informed the nearby sanitation workers and motorcycle-taxi drivers to fetch the free water.

“It's too hot recently, this freezer comes really in time, much earlier than last year”, said Li Shuxuan, a sanitation worker for 18 years. She told reporters that the water she brought for herself was not enough in such hot days. “I want to say thank you to the anonymous donors. Thank you for all of your care, we can continue to enjoy the free water this year. I very much appreciate that. This ice water can really cool you down.” Last year, she and her colleagues could come every day to get free water as much as they needed.

“Perseverance is the key factor for a charity event. I’ll give a big thumb-up to Jinjiang Economic Newspaper”, said Lv Conglong, the owner of Changleji Shedian Shop. Last summer, he purchased a freezer voluntarily and joined this “cold water for free” activity, a charity event initiated by Jinjiang Economic Newspaper. Therefore, his shop became one of the service networks of “loving freezers”. And this summer, when reading the tweet in this newspaper, he retweeted it immediately and left a message that his freezer had been well prepared, and he would like to participate in the charity event again.

It is worth mentioning that, “Loving freezers” have been set around 10℃ before being delivered to the service networks, to make the water proper for those in need.

It is reported that the event of "cold water for free" has received lots of praise in the society since July 22nd. “Loving freezer” has become a charitable platform for caring about those working under high temperature. It is hoped that this event can last year after year and that those “loving freezers” can cool the whole city of Jinjiang.

  一瓶爱心水温暖一座城

  7月22日,本报微信公众号推文《【您一个转发 为他们送出一瓶水】大暑送清凉,致敬烈日下的劳动者!》阅读量超过16万,得到了各界人士的大力支持。

  目前,遍布青阳、梅岭、罗山、陈埭、安海、西园、磁灶等19个镇街的“爱心冰柜”服务网点已启动运行,这些服务网点分布在建设银行、农商银行、八仙山公园、曾井公交站、五店市传统街区、吾悦广场、爱心格子铺等高温劳动者较为集中的地方,方便高温劳动者就近“解渴”。“爱心冰柜”服务时间为每日8:00—18:00,预计持续至8月31日。

  位于五店市状元街1号的万应本草堂服务网点,古建筑大门口一台张贴着蓝色公益海报的“爱心冰柜”显得格外显眼,吸引了不少游客驻足,“晋江不仅城市美,人的心灵也很美!”游客邓女士点赞道。

  “太解渴了,舒服!”在五店市从事保洁工作的彭秀英一口气喝了近一瓶水。她高兴地说,一开始听到店员介绍说免费时,自己还有些迟疑,没想到是真的。

  位于崇德路爱心格子铺服务网点运行后,网点志愿者小朱立即通知附近的环卫工、摩的师傅来网点免费取水喝。

  “天气太热了,这个冰柜很及时,比去年投放得早。”从事保洁工作18年的环卫工李淑芸告诉记者,酷暑来了,自己带的水根本不够喝,“很感谢爱心人士惦记,今年又有免费水喝,真的很开心。这冰冰凉凉的,喝下去才凉快。去年,每天她和同事都会来取水喝,喝多少取多少。”

  “爱心公益贵在坚持,给晋江经济报点赞!”吕聪龙是2019年“爱心冰柜”常乐基(社店店)网点的爱心商家,去年自愿采购了一台冰柜,加入本报“请喝一瓶水”公益行动。看到本报今年的推文后,他第一时间转发并留言表示,冰柜他已自备好,希望能够继续参与本报公益行动,奉献爱心。

  值得一提的是,为了让高温下的劳动者喝得舒服,“爱心冰柜”在出库前,柜体内温度均已基本调控在10℃左右。

  据悉,“请喝一瓶水”公益活动自22日开展以来,社会各界好评如潮。通过“爱心冰柜”,为社会爱心人士提供了一个奉献爱心的平台,希望大家能主动为高温下劳动者递水,为“爱心冰柜”接力续航,让每台“爱心冰柜”都爱心满满,清凉整座晋江城。
