I strongly encourage everyone to donate to organizations which will help with providing basic needs for those who are laid off. There are so many groups that provide food, meals, clothing, housing, health care.  No matter what stimulus bill is passed, it can’t make up for the loss low-income people are incurring and for the enormous anxiety they must feel in regard to the ability to provide the basics for their families.  This is far moreimportant than any donation you might provide to assist in spreading the message of a more balanced approach. For those of you in Minnesota, the Union Gospel Mission does wonderful work in this regard and I have contributed there for many years.
