#FocusFood provides a gift card opportunity for current BSCTC students.
BSCTC Launches #FocusFood Gift Cards
Prestonsburg, Ky – Big Sandy Community & Technical College is pleased to announce #FocusFood, a college-wide initiative that provides grocery store gift cards to current students.
As we all know too well, these are stressful times. Students are feeling particularly vulnerable, as many of them have recently become unemployed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. College students are finishing the semester online. BSCTC seeks to provide some reprieve, show support, and encourage students to complete the semester strong despite the pandemic.
#FocusFood sends a powerful message to BSCTC students: Stay put. Focus. Finish strong. BSCTC hopes that students, the college body, and its communities at large focus on social distancing, the better days ahead, and the ways people can all support one another.
“Our students are our main priority every single day. Now that we are amid a worldwide pandemic, we want to do all that we can to alleviate fear, provide hope, and work to meet their needs,” President Sherry Zylka stated.
The funding for #FocusFood gift cards comes from the BSCTC Student Emergency Fund.
Many thanks to our partner, Food City, Prestonsburg, for taking on a significant collaborative role in organizing the gift cards from their physical store location.
