Orangeburg, S.C. – SC State University will participate in this year’s “2006 Fueling the Future” College Care Package Program sponsored by Jet Magazine. The program gives away up to 10,000 care packages to students at up to 10 historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), and SC State has been chosen as one of them.

“We’ve created this program as a vehicle to promote healthy lifestyles and to promoted additional support for those individuals pursuing higher education,” said Tesa Anewishki, marketing director for Jet Magazine. “Our program is the only one across the country that not only gives away care packages like ‘Mom and Dad’, but also delivers it with the same meaning and message of love.” Included in the care packages are free product samples and other relevant consumer information.

Jet Magazine will begin the tour this fall, stopping at SC State on Friday, November 3, 2006. This year, the tour will also include a fashion show.
