EASE Needs You

EASE is a non-profit and 100% volunteer-run organization allowing City employees to assist fellow City employees who have experienced catastrophic circumstances and are in need of aid. EASE is self supporting and is funded by generous contributions from YOU - City employees. Here are some ways YOU can help:

  1. DONATE through payroll deduction. Here’s a link to a brief PowerPoint that will walk you through donating via Employee Self Service. Our goal is for every employee able, to donate just $1 per paycheck!
  2. FUNDRAISE for EASE within your Department or work group. Rally your work group to donate a basket to our annual online auction. Contact us at to give.
  3. VOLUNTEER - Email us at if you're interested in volunteering.
  4. SMILE.AMAZON.COM - Set up EASE as your charity of choice, then shop online at and Amazon will donate a % of eligible sales to EASE!

The Application Deadline for Assistance is 15th of each month.
