The Tree Of Life Food Bank (TOL) is bringing comfort and providing a full plate, to employees impacted by the longest government shut down in history. Some employees designated as ‘essential,’ are working but, with no pay and still need gas to go to work in order to keep their jobs. Many others have been placed on furlough or leave with no pay. Most of those impacted are struggling with daily survival to include: employees of the Dept of Homeland Security, Justice Dept, State Dept, Dept of Housing and Urban Development, as well as the military personnel serving in the U S Coast Guard.
In accordance with its vision of providing for vulnerable populations,
Tree Of Life Food Bank (TOL) will be providing food, essential goods, counseling and referral services through our community partnerships,
The Lion's Den Missions Base (TLD), Broward Transformation Center (BTC) and Joseph Storehouse, which has extended hours, so Federal employees can pick up food and grocery items until the crisis is over.
Perspective recipients can bring their employee ID to receive services.
