We are sharing information about a local fundraiser for the currently unpaid TSA agents of LGA and JFK who have to report to work, are not eligible for unemployment, and if they do not report for work, will not receive back pay.
This is a quick turnaround fundraiser to get TSA employees items that they need per TSA union officers. Gas gift cards are the highest need item and non-perishable household goods.
To this end, if you would like to donate money which will be used exclusively for gas gift cards you can Venmo @furloughfundraiserofbk
