The Nest Impact

The Nest

What is the NEST?

The overall mission of the NEST is to provide Fairmont State University students with essential resources such as food and hygiene products. The NEST is a non-profit and depends on donation support to provide services for our students.

Schedule an Appoinment!

Over the summer months staffing is limited. Due to this, students are asked to schedule an appointment 24 hours in advance. No appointment needed Monday-Friday from 11 a.m. - 12 p.m.
