https://coastguardfoundation.org/ways-to-give/donate-directly?fbclid=IwAR0_T5xHdg2AzbwacprXkamzDKn2T0w0_L_W3dbcBrXKSLUbPHumKguqgpc Coast Guard Foundation Donations.

The Coast Guard is the only branch of the military directly affected by the partial shutdown that began Saturday because itís funded through the Department of Homeland Security. The other branches receive their money through Department of Defense appropriations, which were signed into law in September.

Coast Guard members who are living paycheck to paycheck may have to take out loans if the government shutdown drags on.

With the DHS funding lapsed, roughly 44,000 active-duty Coast Guard members will be working without paychecks until Congress and the White House reach a deal to reopen the government and provide back pay.

Another 6,000 Coast Guard employees are being furloughed, according to DHS guidance. That means they wonít be working and any pay for the shutdown period would have to come retroactively, through an act of Congress.

A Coast Guard spokesman said active-duty members are usually paid on the first and 15th of each month. If the shutdown persists through Friday, they would not receive their scheduled Jan. 1 paychecks.

I don't think we have to worry. Many institutions are giving government employees interest free loans, as they've done in the past.

The Navy Federal Credit Union said it would be offering interest-free loans to eligible members who donít receive their paychecks on the first of the month. A Navy Federal spokesman said Coast Guard members who have direct deposit through the credit union can register for the loans up to three days after their normal payday.
