Fans Can Help Aid Victims of Attacks

The Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund will be accepting donations at the UNC-FSU football game.

The Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund was created to provide assistance for postsecondary education to financially needy children and spouses of those killed or permanently disabled in last week's terrorist attacks.

Receiving aid will be children and spouses of the victims, including airplane crew and passengers, World Trade Center and Pentagon employees and visitors and relief workers, including firemen and policemen.

The fund was begun by Citizens' Scholarship Foundation of America in Minneapolis and the Lumina Foundation for Education in Indianapolis.
