My coworker's wife was furloughed from the FAA. I'd like to help out in some small way... what's appropriate?

I'd like to do something to help my (white collar, professional) coworker with the sudden loss of income, but I'm not sure what's really appropriate.
I was considering doing a work collection for those that want to contribute, and putting the results on a gift card to a local supermarket, just as some unexpected help with the bills. I'm afraid it will be taken the wrong way, though.
(Side note: I know it's a touchy issue for some, but, less grar is good. Thanks!)
