As we enter the second month of the government shutdown- the longest in the United State’s history- financial strains on all furloughed federal government employees become even more strenuous. If you’re someone struggling in the Charleston area from the shutdown, here are some places that are offering freebies until the government reopens.
- SkyZone: a trampoline park and great place to bring the family, is offering all federal government employees who are furloughed or going without pay a free 60-minute jump session for them and up to three of their immediate family members. Participating SkyZone locations offer this deal every Tuesday through Thursday until January 31, 2019.
- Charleston Carriage Rides: Want to learn more about Charleston history and are a federal employee going without pay? Take a historic carriage ride through downtown Charleston for free through this Friday, January 25th.
- Rosetta Stone: Want to pick up a new language during the shutdown? Rosetta Stone is offering furloughed government workers a 3 month gift to the Rosetta Stone app. Just email your name and validation info to firstname.lastname@example.org to get set up.
