Government Shutdown Emergency Assistance Fund



The federal government shutdown is affecting many of our friends and neighbors in the Kansas City metro area. Uncertainty over the length of the furlough is causing anxiety and stress for government employees who are not receiving pay, as well as those who rely on government assistance for basic needs.

To help with this developing situation, local Jewish organizations are coming together under the banner of
Jewish Voices United to collect emergency funds to assist those affected by the government shutdown. The funds will be used to assist food recipients of Jewish Family Services and Jewish Vocational Service who are affected by the government shutdown. All funds will be collected by the Jewish Federation of Greater Kansas City.

The goal: to raise $35,000 to provide much-needed food assistance during the shutdown.* 100% of your donation will go directly to individuals and families in the form of gift cards, redeemable at area grocery stores to help address the threat of food insecurity during the shutdown.


The Government Shutdown Emergency Assistance Fund is in partnership with these Jewish Voices United members: Avodah, Congregation Beth Shalom, Congregation Beth Torah, Congregation Kol Ami, Congregation Ohev Sholom, Hyman Brand Hebrew Academy, The Jewish Community Center—The J, Jewish Community Foundation, Jewish Community Relations Bureau|AJC, Jewish Family Services, Jewish Federation, Jewish Vocational Service, Midwest Center for Holocaust Education, New Reform Temple, the Rabbinical Association and TribeKC.

This fundraising effort is also in partnership with: Congregation BIAV, Kehilath Israel Synagogue, Temple Sinai, and The Temple, Congregation B’nai Jehudah.

 
*Any unused funds (once the government shutdown ends) will be donated to the Chesed Fund, which provides financial assistance for those facing crisis situations, and those in chronic need.
