The HEART of BCTC logoLexington, KY – Bluegrass Community and Technical College (BCTC) is pleased to announce the launch of its inaugural BCTC Giving Day on April 25 during Community College Month.

“We are excited to join with our community, alumni, and advocates to lend support to students facing financial hardships,” said Dr. Greg Feeney, President/CEO. “Funds will be used to purchase foods, both perishable and non-perishable, toiletries, and other items for students in need.”

With many families facing economic challenges and a state workforce shortage in targeted industries, Feeney said the need for student support has never been greater.

According to a recent KCTCS survey, food insecurity is a significant issue facing Kentucky’s community college students, with 25% reporting low food security. By providing access to nutritious food, BCTC hopes to provide a supportive environment where students can thrive both academically and personally.

BCTC joins the Kentucky Community and Technical College System and the other 15 colleges in this 24-hour fundraiser.

Individuals, businesses, and organizations interested in supporting the BCTC’s students can designate their gift directly to the college, and early giving is already open.
