I am a veteran/federal employee currently working without pay. I love my job but I am close to running out of my saving as I already paid just the basic utilities this month. I already have credit card companies asking for what I owe but I still need to put food on the table for my 5 growing children.
Mortgage will be due on 2/1/19 and going without pay I will not have money to pay for it. I will receive back-pay but the way it had been done in the past is they only give you little by little added on to every paycheck.
The donations I receive will go towards my daily expenses during the shutdown (rent, food, utilities and transportation.)
I don't expect much but I do appreciate any donation made.
