Local Businesses Coming Together to Support Federal Workers

EUREKA, Ca. (KIEM) – Over a month since the ongoing government shutdown and thousands of federal workers still continue to work without pay.

Local businesses in the North Coast are coming together to support the federal workers.

The Del Norte Central Labor Council and Cooperation Humboldt will be distributing grocery gift cards and household items. They’ve partnered with the Central Labor Council and many of the local businesses to collect donations. Those donations will go towards families impacted by the shutdown.

David Cobb of Cooperation Humboldt said “It’s a good way to let the workers know that community has its back.”

The distribution is on Friday, FROM 12 P.M. to 3 P.M. at the Eureka Labor Temple.
