Tampa Bay Organization Helps Coast Guard Employees During Shutdown

We are now in the midst of the longest government shutdown in U.S. history, something that is impacting federal workers across the country. For some essential employees, this means continuing to work without any pay. 

For the 41,000 nationwide members of the Coast Guard, that is the sad reality. While most military services are part of the Defense Department and have funding, the U.S. Coast Guard is a part of the Department of Homeland Security. They have been ordered to continue working without pay until the end of the government shutdown. 

This has had a huge impact on the Tampa Bay community, as Air Station Clearwater is the largest and busiest Air Station in the Coast Guard, with over 1,100 guardsmen stationed there.

The Tampa Bay Veterans Alliance has set out to provide assistance for these brave men and women. The group is hoping to raise $5,000 with help from the Tampa Bay community.
