WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The United Way of the Cape Fear is stepping in to help the AmeriCorps Vista program employees.

Because the program is government funded, some of these individuals are not getting a paycheck due to the government shutdown.

United Way of the Cape Fear is stepping in and supplementing the program with a loan.

Chris Nelson, President of the United Way says, he is happy they are in a position to fund the program because it benefits everyone in the community.
