Help our neighbors affected by the government shutdown

The shutdown of the federal government has now lasted over one month and hundreds of thousands of furloughed employees and contractors have been struggling to get by without pay. Millions of others are at risk of losing public assistance, threatening food and housing security.

A Wider Circle is committed to supporting furloughed employees and contractors, people at risk of losing public benefits, and their families during this strenuous time. 100% of donations made through this giving page will go directly to those affected. Funds will be disbursed in the form of Giant gift cards, along with canned food when available, to serve as a supplemental support system.

If you, or anyone you know, has been affected by the shutdown, please email us at with the subject line 'Shutdown Assistance' or call us at 301-608-3504.
