大西雅圖台灣同鄉會呼籲同鄉捐款台灣高雄氣爆救災

TAGS Logo Small 150

各位台灣鄉親及關注台灣的朋友們:

八月一日清晨,我們的家鄉台灣高雄市熱鬧地區發生了街道地底管線的爆炸事件,造成30人死亡,309人受傷慘劇,五、六條街的街道全部變成v型大溝。財物損失,公共設施完全破壞,讓人震驚與痛心。我們應該對這個事件表示慰問及幫助。

幾天前,全美台灣同鄉會會長周明宏先生寄函來本同鄉會,也呼籲大家捐款給高雄市政府社會局社會救助金專戶,直接交給第一手現場救濟單位,統籌運用,將善款做最迅速轉交。我們也認為這是最直接最不假他人手的方法。

所以,我們提議以下方法:
(一),直接銀行匯款,戶名:高雄市政府社會局社會救助金專戶
帳號:高雄銀行公庫部102103031319,請務必註明捐助「81氣爆」

(二),或者你要大西雅圖台灣同鄉會代勞,我們也可以接受支票。抬頭請寫:”TAGS”, 並在支票下方備註欄註明:”8/1 Gas Explosion in Kaohsiung” , 寄至:
Taiwanese Association of Greater Seattle(TAGS), P. O. Box 1993, Bellevue, WA 98009
我們收集並統計後,將儘速一齊寄到全美台灣同鄉會以取得非營利減稅號碼。全美台灣同鄉會會以最快速度統計後寄至高雄市政府社會局社會救助金專戶。直接轉交受災戶及救災物資購買及發放。

非營利號碼會於日後寄至各位熱心捐款者,感謝您的關懷。我們一起努力,讓我們的台灣受災居民感受到海外親友的溫暖。也希望經費能做最有效的運用。

Dear Chapter Presidents,

By now, you should have learned or read about the “8/1 Gas Explosion in Kaohsiung” that had cause unbelievable tragedies and tremendous loss of lives and properties in southern part of Kaohsiung City. As loving and caring Taiwanese American in the United States, we definitely feel the pain and sorrow for our fellow Taiwanese of the area due to this tragedy.

Many chapter presidents and chapter members had contacted TAA-USA and asked to start the collective efforts from all TAs to help suffering Taiwanese in the tragedy area. Thus, I would like to propose, for chapters with tax-exempt status, please help to collect contributions of your member and issue the receipt to them. Then, if agreeable, mail the amount to TAA-USA, so, collectively, we can wire the total amount to the special assistance account provided by the municipal office of Kaohsiung City. For chapters without tax-exempt status, please ask your members to mail their contribution to TAA-USA treasurer and the TAA-USA will provide the tax-exempt receipt.

For all check contributions, please make check payable to (either TAA-USA or local chapter) with note of “8/1 Gas Explosion in Kaohsiung” in the memo field.

The address to mail to is:

Ms. Sophie Chi
TAA-USA Treasurer
8220 Crestwood Heights Drive, #208
McLean, VA 22102

Let’s start this efforts immediately and conclude the task in 3-4 weeks, i.e. to wire the total contribution to the special account in early September. Here is the information coming out from the municipal office of Kaohsiung City (and, the special assistance account is where we will wire our collective contribution to):
