While I don’t support the proposed wall along our southern border, I do support those who are affected by the government shutdown.
Is there any organization willing to host short-term no-interest loans from individuals to those who can show they’re affected (either directly or indirectly) by the shutdown?
If Congress votes to do back-pay for all the government workers affected, then paying back could be done as soon the first check comes in. If not, it could be a longer term loan to keep them from going broke while paying for rent and food.
I know some banks are offering loan extensions and such, but I haven’t seen anything from private businesses (apartment complexes/landlords or Smith’s come to mind.
If you can find an organization willing to host, count me in as a donor.
