Jewish Groups Across US Offer Interest-Free Loans to Federal Workers Affected by Government Shutdown

A group of affiliated Jewish organizations are stepping in to aid federal workers facing financial problems due to the ongoing shutdown of the US government.

Hebrew Free Loan Association chapters in various states are reaching out to furloughed workers and others who have not received their regular paychecks as the shutdown continues.

The chapters included in the loan drive are San Francisco, Austin and Philadelphia, among others. Jewish Community Services of South Florida and Jewish Family & Children’s Service of St. Louis are also involved in aiding unpaid federal employees.

Eric S. Goldstein, CEO of the United Jewish Appeal-Federation of New York, which is working with a Hebrew Free Loan chapter on the issue, said in a statement, “Today, it’s clear that federal workers in our area are in financial distress because of the shutdown. We hope this loan program will alleviate some of the stress and worry for these individuals and their families.”

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
