“Let’s help them out. Starting over is going to be difficult, but we can ease this struggle with a donation,” the page says. “If we can raise a few thousand dollars for each affected employee to assist them finding alternative living and transportation arrangements and funds to ‘start over’, it will give those folks a leg up and help them stay in the area and continue to be employed and care for their families.”
