Penn has the money to keep funding the Philadelphia police, but they can’t pay workers who are essential to the normal day-to-day operations of the university? Forgive me if it’s a little hard to believe....

We need to love others as God wants us to love, as when we serve another human being we are serving Christ by caring for our brothers and sisters as we would want to be cared for. Then we can echo Christ's Love in how He died out of unique love for each of us as He tells us: "I did it for you."

Veni Creator Spiritus to the Dining Hall Workers and to all! May The Most Holy Trinity constantly possess us with Wisdom and all of the Seven Gifts. Dear God replace our hearts with Your Immaculate Heart so we can love others like You love them. It is in giving that You will allow us to receive sevenfold via this tithe form by showing merciful support to others during this pandemic. God help make each of us a Saint.

I’m sick of penn not putting their money where their mouth is. At the end of the day, they’re a greedy corporation. Really disappointed in my alma mater at the moment

Thanks for adding your voice.

Penn’s endowment should be used in times like these to ensure that an institution that provides such an amazing education to its students can provide for those who make such an entity run.

I've said to folks in Houston for years what the University aims to do once they get the chance. This is disappointing but not unexpected. It is breaking down the relations between the University and the broader Philadelphia community.

When I was a Penn undergrad, Penn Dining workers were among the most consistently caring people on campus. Regardless of my experiences with them, they deserve support in this crisis.
