She got canned. But what do I do?

My girlfriend just found out that her last day of work is in three weeks. She was told that it was a corporate decision and not performance-based. She'll be eligible for unemployment so we won't be in dire straits right away..But I guess none of those details matters really, I just want to know what I can do to help or be more supportive.
What could I do?
What could I say to keep her positive?
What could your loved ones have done to make things easier for you when you lost your job?
Thank you for your insights.
