Note this is Alpha's PR response to the Shutdown

Alpha Media stations in Fredericksburg, VA (WFLS, WVBX, WWUZ, and WNTX) have created a web page with listings of businesses from the Fredericksburg, Northern Virginia and Southern Maryland areas that are assisting federal workers during the government shutdown.

Many businesses are coming together to help the community during this time in need by providing free or reduced fee meals, services, groceries, and even temporary employment opportunities. The list is growing every few minutes. The community support is one of the main reasons this area is one of the best places to live. The list of services can be found on the station websites and social media pages.
