“Dear PoPville,

I’m a furloughed fed and would love to volunteer but don’t know where to start. The catch being that, when I’m allowed to work, I don’t have time for a regular volunteer commitment. The organizations I have bookmarked for when I have more time all require training and a regular time commitment. Do you know of a list of organizations that take one off volunteers, or maybe organizations that could use a group of us furloughed feds for a day-long (or maybe several day-long) project(s)?”

Also,

“Dear PoPville,

I am a furloughed fed who is very frustrated with the current state of affairs and how negatively it is impacting all of DC and the mood in the District. In response, I started a charity drive on Facebook. I plan to do a series of these if the shutdown drags on. Trying to make some lemonade out of lemons. All of the proceeds go directly to the Feeding America.”
