AUBURN, AL (WSFA) -

After the abrupt closing of MasterBrand Cabinets in Auburn, over 400 people were left without jobs and now the city of Auburn and Auburn City Schools are stepping in to help.

Tuesday, just a week after the announcement of the closure, the city of Auburn and Auburn City Schools will have a job fair to try to re-locate some of those former MasterBrand workers. Over 30 companies will be represented and City of Auburn officials say that this is a step in the right direction.

"A lot of people have called and said, 'How can we help?' And we just appreciate everybody, the way they’ve stepped up. We’re working hard for these people. There's no way to sugarcoat it, it’s a bad situation, said City of Auburn Director of Workforce Development Cary Cox. "It’s a good company that’s been good in Auburn. Nobody hates it worse than they do, but we’re going to work hard for these people and we’re going to get them placed in jobs."

Cox said that some of the employers at the job fair will be looking to make some immediate hires.

The job fair will be from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m., at the Auburn Junior High School gym on 405 S. Dean Road.
