Tucson, AZ, April 15, 2020 — Tucson grandpa and retired engineer, Jerry Fay, is urging Americans who don’t need their stimulus checks to find ways to share them with charities and fellow Americans in need.
Fay says, “In just a few short weeks, so many people around me have lost work. In response, Congress passed the CARES Act that will provide many Americans with a check from the Federal Government. That’s great, but a lot of us don’t need that money, and for too many others, it will scarcely get them through a month. To those of us who don’t need the check—now is our time to step forward.
“Give it to an individual in need, a family in need or to a charity that supports individuals and families in need. Giving up our checks is not only an act of generosity, it’s an act of social responsibility. We can help ease the stress and losses of so many of our fellow Americans by simply sharing something we do not need.”
Fay is asking his friends and neighbors to spread the word, and his appeal was recently published in a letter to the Arizona Daily Star:
He hopes word of mouth will be paired with #ShareYourWindfall efforts on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and other social media pages, as people “embrace the American tradition of helping others. Together,” he adds, “we can make a difference.”
