Each year, thousands of Freshman Survival Kits are passed out on college campuses across the United States. The kits are produced by Cru and are evangelistic for students who do not yet have a personal faith, but are also encouraging for young believers.
Give an FSK to students before they arrive on campus. The kits include a highlighter, sticker, water bottle, Bible, book (either Jesus Without Religion, Case for Christ, or Blue Like Jazz) and Uncensored DVD. They are packaged in a laundry bag.
The kits are customizable for African Americans, Asian-Americans, Hispanics, international students, cadets and midshipmen.
They cost $7 including shipping and handling (cash or check accepted).
Email Jane Stump to place your order, including your shipping address and quantity of kits.
