PERRY, Fla. (WTXL) — CareerSource North Florida is working to help people looking for work in the Perry area. This effort follows the announcement that Georgia-Pacific would close its Foley Cellulose Facility in Perry. That news broke in September just weeks after Hurricane Idalia rocked the Perry area. GP said, "this is a strategic decision that was made prior to Hurricane Idalia and is not a reflection of the hard work and effort of the Foley team."

CareerSource North Florida said they would help the hundreds of people affected by the closure. Thursday, they announced a career and resource fair. It's planned for Ocober 18 at Forest Capital Hall in Perry. It goes from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
