WPAFB Teams Up with Dayton Agnecy to Provide Food
WPAFB -- Wright-Patt civilians may be back at work, but they are still worried about back pay and whether a debt ceiling deadlock could force more furloughs.
So the Dayton Food Bank stopped by the base Tuesday morning to give out fresh produce, meat, pasta and canned foods to furloughed employees and anyone else needing assistance.
"I see onions, stuff to make soup, sandwiches, stuff that a family needs to eat. We are going to get half a paycheck on Friday. We won't be able to pay our bills; we won't have food money because of the shutdown," said Karen Gulley.
Gulley is a paralegal at WPAFB and one of the many who needs all the help she can get.
"When you're living paycheck to paycheck it's kind of hard," said Marvin Bailey who also works at WPAFB. "They need to pass some resolutions and get us back going."
"They will be getting half a paycheck and when you have half a paycheck you have to make ends meet somehow," said community relations manager at Dayton Food Bank Lora Davenport.
"The biggest concern I get from my civilian colleagues is the uncertainty of what tomorrow might bring and when they're going to get paid if it's going to be the full paycheck that they are expecting," said Michael Holloway, an executive officer at WPAFB.
"Wondering if we'll get paid back, wondering what will happen if a budgets not passed, we never know when our next round of furloughs will be," said Jorita Moore at WPAFB. "A lot of our families are dual employed civilians so some families aren't getting any income right now."
"This hurts and my husband works on base also so we got hit twice," said Gulley. "We have two 20-year-old children in college, this is hard, very hard."
Some wondered why the Food Bank came to WPAFB, even though these employees are back to work.
"I think it's unfair without knowing exactly what is going on in people's households to broach the topic, so we didn't ask that," said Holloway.
"Not having any money and wanting to go to work and all you can do is sit at home. I don't call that a paid vacation," said Gulley.
More than 300 families and 1,000 people will benefit from the mobile food bank. This was the first time the Food Bank came to WPAFB, but the two are working to link up again soon.
