Assistance Center Closing; Job Fair Set for Wednesday

November 01, 2010

A Local Assistance Center that was opened last week by Placer County to aid employees affected by the Galleria fire will be closing today. With the successful re-opening of about 60 stores and the relocation of additional employees to other area stores, the need for the Center has dropped.

  • Call toll free at 1-800-300-5616 for benefit information;
  • Visit the EDD local, One Stop Career Center at 1919 Grass Valley Highway, Auburn or 5655 Hillsdale Blvd., Sacramento; and
  • Apply for food stamps and other public assistance at their local county assistance office. In Placer County at 1000 Sunset Blvd, suite 220 Rocklin, or 11542 B Avenue, Auburn.

Additionally, a special job fair for those affected by the fire will be held Wed, Nov 3, from 1 PM to 4 PM at the University of Phoenix, 516 Gibson Dr., Roseville.
