About 40 partners will be available next Wednesday at the Furlough Resource Fair to provide food and advice for those affected by the partial federal shutdown in Prince William and Stafford Counties.
Capital Area Food Bank, ACTS Homeless Shelter in Dumfries and others will be at the fair, said Michael Futrell, one of the event organizers and a former Virginia Delegate. The fair is from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 30 at the Competitive Edge Athletic Performance Center, located at 14849 Persistence Dr in Woodbridge.
The fair aims to target areas to help those affected by the partial shutdown: finance, food, transportation, schools and mental and physical health, Futrell said, adding mortgage and lending institutions and Dominion Energy are among those who plan to attend.
Attendees can ask questions and bring any information that they may need advice on, Futrell said.
