TRI CITIES, Wash. - Employees at the Tri-Cities airport are currently being unpaid even though they are working and visit tri-cities want you to help.
Visit Tri-Cities sent out a flyer asking for local businesses and city members to help out.
According to the release as the partial government shutdown continues, 70 tri-cities community members who are also TSA and FAA employees are having a difficult time.
It is said that furloughed employees will be likely repaid but the loss of one check has been creating hardship.
Tri-Cities businesses, organizations and individuals are trying to provide support for those TSA and FAA employees.
Visit Tri-Cities is also conducting random acts of kindness which include meals during regularly scheduled shifts and/or donation drives to support affected families.
If you or your business wish to support Tri-Cities Airport TSA and FAA employees during this financially difficult time, please contact Buck Taft at (509) 547-6352.
