A few years ago, Anup Poudel could not have imagined his higher education journey from Nepal to the United States. Born in Kathmandu, a city of nearly a million people, his familiar surroundings included structures obstructing the views and streets filled with cars. The rolling hills and winding roads of West Virginia were very unfamiliar on his drive from a local airport to his future home, the Fairmont State University campus.
During two events this fall, Fairmont State University and Pierpont Community & Technical College Student Government members collected hundreds of pounds of donated goods to benefit local non-profit agencies.
Fairmont State University and Pierpont Community & Technical College Student Government is sponsoring a Free Family Movie Night and Food Drive on Friday, Nov 5.
The Disney Pixar movie "Toy Story 3" will be shown at 6 p.m. in Colebank Hall gym. Admission is free and open to the public. Families are welcome. Parking will be available on the top level of the parking garage.
Those who attend are asked to bring one canned food item to donate to local food pantries.
