MEDFORD, Ore. -- United Way of Jackson County is expanding a fund to help government employees affected by the partial shutdown.

Dee Anne Everson, the CEO, says she knows employees will get back paid, but says in the meantime, many need help.

The funding comes from the company's Hope Chest, which usually is reserved for people who are sent their way by a case worker.

To qualify, you just have to bring a government employee ID, and proof you've been furloughed or are working without pay. Usually you can receive about $300 per year in assistance, and/or United Way can refer you to other agencies.
