**ALL UNIVERSITY HOUSE RESIDENTS PLEASE READ**
On Sunday, after the fire alarm went off, at around 2am, I spent over four hours talking with Ms. Avis (Our Building Security Guard). She was practically in tears. This 50 year old lady has been abused both mentally and physically by people that live in our building and their guests. Yes physically. She was beat up by some kid, people talk to her like she's worthless, like she's not a fellow human being with feelings of her own. Some kids have even tried to break into her car and slash her tires. People need to remember that she doesn't "pick" on you because she wants to, but because she needs to make ends-meet. This is her job. And even though she goes through hell here, she does the best job she can to protect us. Especially compared to all of the other security guards. She has sucked it up and gone through all of this and has taken all the abuse for the little pay of $9/hour. That doesn't include the overtime she DOESN'T get paid for. My point to this post is not to inform you all of all this abuse she is receiving but because I believe we should all unite as one building, and raise money for her. As a THANK YOU for everything she has done for US and as a thank you for putting her life in danger for US. I am not sure how this will turn out or how much money this will raise, but if we all chipped in even just one dollar (or maybe more if you can of course) it will add up. This would mean the world to her. We owe her this much. Especially given that uhouse only pays her $9/hour. PLEASE consider sparing whatever you can. Just take a minute to imagine how happy and grateful she would be. THANK YOU ALL. LETS DO THIS.
