Danbury continues collection drives to aid federal workers as 2nd shutdown appears unlikely

The possibility of another government shutdown appears to be stopped, but Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton says the City will continue its food donation drive at least through Saturday.  The effort was started during the last shut down when federal employees, including more than 200 at Danbury Federal Correctional Institution, missed two paychecks.   He says there were basic needs that weren't being met for workers who live paycheck to paycheck, especially when it took back-pay a while to get into their accounts.  Gas station gift cards are being collected for distribution through the Danbury Health Department.  A food drive is also under way.  There were an estimated 1,500 state residents impacted by the shutdown.
