Thank you Senate District 7 DFL Representatives for supporting our Federal Employees & the rest of your constituents!
Thank you Federal Employees! We are so grateful for the services you provide our community.
We are so sorry for the challenges you encountered while the government was shutdown. We cannot imagine the emotional, physical and financial turmoil this experience has caused you individually. We understand that many of you still need help to get you back on your feet. The city of Duluth has compiled a list of resources available to support you. Click here for that list.
Also Ruby’s Pantry at the Coppertop Church can help provide groceries for federal employees experiencing financial difficulty. Ruby’s Pantry-Coppertop will be distributing food at First United Methodist Church (The Coppertop), 230 East Skyline Parkway, beginning at 5:15 pm on Thursday, January 18. Registration starts at 4 p.m. and the distribution continues until about 6:45 p.m.
There are no income or residence guidelines and anyone may participate. For a $20 donation (cash only; checks and EBT cards cannot be accepted), participants receive approximately two large boxes of food.
For this distribution, First United Methodist will pay one half of the $20 share for all Federal workers (and will pay the total price for any who need it).
Participants are asked to bring their own boxes or other containers.
Federal workers should bring proof of federal employment.
Volunteers are always needed between 3 and 8 pm. If you are interested in volunteering or have questions, call First United Methodist Church at 727-5021.
