Bergen New Bridge Medical Center Offering Employment Opportunities and Free Meals for Furloughed Federal Government Employees
The governmental shutdown has exceeded a month and is impacting the wellbeing of 420,000 workers and their families nationwide. In an effort to help stem the impact to some of those families, Bergen New Bridge Medical Center (BNBMC) is offering immediate temporary employment opportunities and free meals to all furloughed federal government employees and their families affected by the partial government shutdown.
Those workers impacted by the government shutdown can apply for positions at BNBMC, receive immediate offers, and onboard in as short as two business days. For employment opportunities, emails, preferably with resume attached or included, should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. This mailbox will be monitored and applications will be expedited for furloughed federal employees.
Furloughed federal government employees and their immediate family members are invited to come to Bergen New Bridge Medical Center’s Bistro Café (full service cafeteria) and The Daily Grind (grab-and-go options only) for meals. The Café is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. for breakfast, and from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for lunch while The Daily Grind is open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Valid federal government ID is necessary to receive complimentary meals.
“As a community provider, we want to support our government colleagues and their families by offering something meaningful,” said Deborah Visconi, President and CEO of Bergen New Bridge Medical Center. “I can think of nothing else more significant than offering short-term gainful employment and extending free meals to these workers and their families.”
