Local Help For Federal Workers Affected By Government Shutdown

The number of organizations offering help to federal employees who are affected by the government shutdown continues to grow. The Danville Area Food Bank has announced it has free food available for federal workers. Federal employees are asked to call food bank president Joe Neizer at 570-441-6867 to make an appointment to pick up food. Also, the Entenmann’s Bakery Outlet in Shamokin Dam, Snyder County is offering federal employees one free loaf of bread each day until the shutdown ends. All they have to do is show their employee identification card.
