The newspaper is collecting food in its annual Gift of Love food drive to support the Nest and other local food banks.
The Nest campus food bank assists students at Fairmont State University and Pierpont Community & Technical College.
The Nest is open Mondays and Thursdays from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and 4-6 p.m.
Students who need extra help with food supplies will be able to use The Nest by showing their student I.D. and filling out a form that will be kept confidential.

We've seen a few shiny new tablets and eReaders received or purchased during the holidays. Make the most out of your device, and use it to borrow eBooks from the WVDELI!
We are happy to walk you through the steps of downloading eBooks. Please contact Kelly to set up a time to bring in your eReader, tablet or smartphone to review the process.
OverDrive, which powers the WVDELI, has some fantastic instructions available on their website as well. Get started with custom tutorials for your device.
Borrow an eReader
Students, faculty and staff can check out an eReader for two weeks. We encourage the campus community to participate and explore eReader technology! If you're thinking about buying an eReader (gift cards burning a hole in your pocket?), this is an opportunity to try before you buy!
Interested? You'll need to request an appointment for a brief setup session. Please complete this short online form. You'll then be contacted to arrange a meeting time.
Read from your browser
Many titles in the WVDELI can also be read in your computer's web browser - no special software or apps required! Find out more about OverDrive Read.
