Please join your fellow West Virginians participating in West Virginia Day to Serve! Faculty, staff and the community are asked to help "Fill the Nest" and support the campus food bank.
This week, bring your donations -- needed items are listed here -- to one of the two drop-off points:
- Through the week of Sept. 23, you may donate items for The Nest at the Library Circulation Desk. Donations are collected here year-round.
- On Saturday, Sept. 28, bring donations to Duvall-Rosier Field to see the Fighting Falcons take on WV State. Kickoff is at 1 p.m.
About the Day to Serve
Gov. Early Ray Tomblin has charged our state’s residents to volunteer and give back to their communities as part of Day to Serve, the second annual call to service for residents of Virginia, Maryland, D.C. and West Virginia.
About The Nest
The Nest food bank, located in the Library, benefits Fairmont State University and Pierpont Community & Technical College students.
Please help spread the word to students in need that The Nest is available to them. Current hours are Mondays and Thursdays, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and 4 -6 p.m. More information is available online.
About The Big Nest
To kick off this special campaign, students and staff constructed a nest in the Library lobby, on display this week and pictured below.
Thanks to Amy Drvar, Amy Pellegrin and everyone involved in this special effort.
