For over a month, over 500,000 federal employees and contractors have worked without pay or have been furloughed during the partial, federal shutdown. Unable to be paid, families in our community are in need of your help. In the spirit of charity, we’re calling on you to help your neighbors, as they continue to work for and serve our country.
I'm a federal employee/contractor.
We're ready to help you! Thanks to your friends and neighbors in Collinsville we're able to offer assistance in the form of gas cards or grocery cards, funds-permitting.
In order to qualify, you must be able to supply the following:
A valid, government-agency ID or proof of employment.
Proof of Oklahoma residency.
That's it! Once you notify us, below, we'll reach out to you and let you know when assistance can be picked up.
I want to help.
Thank you for your help! Even a $5 gift can go a long way towards helping the thousands of families affected and those in our community.
