Try banging on the bottom of the gas tank while a helper is cranking the engine. This is the most common type of failure on a Chrysler product, and once the shock gets them started, they stay running at least until you stop the engine. That is the less-common type of failure for GM pumps, but if it works, you can connect a hose to the pressure port and pump the gas into some cans. Instead of having to crank and/or run the engine, you can bypass the fuel pump relay, then bang on the tank to try to get the pump going.
When mechanics do this in the shop, they have the car on a hoist, then they can use a transmission jack to lower the tank. You might be able to do the same thing with a floor jack, but be ready for some frustration. You will not know which way the hoses and wires are pulling, and it is pretty certain the tank will slide off the jack.
Most shops also have a manually-operated fuel pump and tank used to empty gas tanks. You might find one of these at an auto parts store that rents or borrows tools.
