Forsyth Technical Community College to hold drive-through school supply collection

“Thankful Things” is Forsyth Tech’s school supply collection to assist students through the Forsyth Tech Cares office. You can donate school supplies and help Forsyth Tech students who do not have the supplies they need for classes.

Forsyth Tech Cares began during COVID-19 to assist students with additional needs such as food, transportation, and housing. Forsyth Tech Cares evolved into a program in the Student Success Center and is now staffed with three Cares Navigators. The Navigators identify student needs and help make referrals and recommendations for wrap-around services that are barriers to completing their education.
