Direct Support for Gov. Employees

We are helping our neighbors by collecting cash donations and then distributing it to Government Employees that submit a request for funds.

Our goal is to raise $40,000,000 so we can give at least $250 to each Government employee. We would love to give up to $500 each. They do not have to pay it back!

Help us by donating to the GoFundMe campaign here: https://www.gofundme.com/gov-employee-direct-support?teamInvite=jc3biuMVAlnhZHfg27rIrHXUut70O4UdZ988rCe244Vb6CyIB39ot0gq0KvAKrHP  

If the government reopens, we will continue to give funds up to two weeks after it reopens to help through the process of getting an actual paycheck.
