MEDFORD, Ore. — Right now, workers for the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) aren't making any bread, but Lisa Allen is making the bread for them. With the partial government lurching into its fourth week, essential workers like those in the TSA continue to work without pay — having missed one paycheck already.

Allen is the owner of Great Harvest Bread Company. She has friends in the TSA and knows first-hand how they're struggling.

"I just feel like this is a great community," Allen told NewsWatch 12. "We all pull together to help each other out whether it's political or not."

Allen has been sending freshly-made bread and a number of less-perishable items to TSA workers in the area in order to help out. She says that she is grateful for the federal employees who have continued to work without pay to keep everyone safe.
