Furloughs affecting federal workers began last Friday.
Today, those workers received their first paychecks reflecting those schedule changes.
The 21st Century Partnership is hosting another SHARE event to help those workers and their communities next month.
SHARE stands for "Sharing Help Assistance and Resources for Everyone." The events aim to recruit vendors around Central Georgia, to provide help for federal employees of Robins Air Force Base.
SHARE compiles resources for mental health, financial strength, and planning for budget cuts.
"The 21st Century Partnership, as well as the community at large, realize that we're going to have a substantial impact," said 21st Century Partnership Chief Operating Officer Chrissy Miner. "Not only the workers themselves will feel this impact, but the [state] economy as a whole."
The next SHARE event will be held August 9, at the Courtyard Marriott ball room at 589 Carl Vinson Parkway, in Warner Robins.
