Nothing But Nets Campaign
Now through October 31

United Campus Ministry would like to remind all student organizations about the  of the FSU Nothing But Nets Campaign that will end October 31. Make sure your organization gets your nets now! Last year FSU student organizations bought 170 nets ($10 per net) which saved 680 lives for 3 years. We would like to double that this year - your group can make a significant difference. Every group that participates will get their name listed with how many nets they were able to buy this year in The Bottom Line in November. 
United Campus Ministry is coordinating the campaign and they will donate the money on Frostburg State University's behalf. For more information, contact  Cindy Zirlott.
