As the government shutdown continues, many families are impacted as each day passes.
The Associated Press said roughly 800,000 federal workers - more than half of them still on the job - are set to miss their first paycheck Friday under the stoppage that began Dec. 22.
To help alleviate the burden on Georgia families, Hosea Helps is stepping in to give assistance.
The organization will provide items to federal employees from Tuesday to Thursday from 10 a.m. until 6.p.m.
They will have food, clothing, baby products, and household supplies available for pick up at 4215 Wendell Drive SW in Atlanta.
Families can also come partake in the Martin Luther King Jr. Festival of Services on Wed. Jan. 23 where food will also be provided. The event will be at the Georgia International Convention Center Hall C & D. The event is from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.
