Students and faculty from Forsyth Tech spent 9/11 participating in the National Day of Service by volunteering at the 2nd Harvest Food Bank’s distribution center. Volunteers, organized by Student Government President, Sonia Yancey, spent the afternoon working in the warehouse building pallets of food that will be taken to shelters around Forsyth County and distributed to our neighbors in need.
Yancey, a criminal justice major with goals of becoming a family law attorney, added the National Day of Service to a long list of volunteering efforts she has spearheaded at Forsyth Tech. From working on a house build with Habitat for Humanity to helping Cellphones for Soldiers raise 37,000 minutes in 30 days, the Forsyth Tech student government’s goal is to stay connected to the wider community.
“This is very necessary to stay connected to the community.” Yancey told CCD. “No matter how hard the labor is everyone is always smiling when it’s over.”
