Support for Federal Contractor

$3,455 of $7,500 goal

Raised by 70 people in 1 month
Hello everyone. Whether you know me or you don’t, thank you for taking the time for visiting this page.

As you may know we are in the middle of a government shutdown. How this personally affects me and my family is that I have been furloughed since Christmas. I am a contracted federal employee and have been for the past 7 years. I am the main bread winner in my home. That means that my family depends on me to carry the brunt of the finances. While most federal employees are able to receive back pay for days during the shutdown, historically contractors do not. I personally have waited to seek support until we reached the end of our means. Unfortunately that time is rapidly approaching. 

The president has already said he could go months, or even a year(s) under this shutdown. Until this shutdown ends, each day funds are getting more and more tight and will eventually run out and I will no longer be able to pay rent or utilities and buy food.

Any amount you are willing to donate will be greatly appreciated. Please pray, and help in any way that God lays on your heart; financially or with prayers. Again. Thank you for your time whether you donate or not!  Any money received will either go to help me and my family to pay bills of companies not willing to defer payment or to other families in need during this time of struggle.

I appreciate your contribution. I pray the Grace of God to continue to bless you and keep you all.

I want to thank everyone again for their prayers, love and support during this difficult and stressful time. I did update the amount only because the shutdown yet continues and each day that goes is an added burden and strain on our family. Again, thank you everyone!

**Important** Federal Employee will receive back pay, but government contractors like myself will NOT receive any back pay, and historically have never received back pay during a government shutdown.

I am so grateful to everyone who has given their support, love, prayers, and shares. It means more than I will ever be able to express. Unfortunately, it looks like this shut down will go into next week and each day is heartbreaking for my family and our country. Thank you for renewing my faith and helping us stay strong.
