Second-year medical students at the TCU and UNTHSC School of Medicine have announced a Virtual Back to School Supplies Drive as one way to assist Fort Worth communities during the pandemic.
“We know school supplies are expensive, and it can be difficult for families to make all the necessary purchases. With the economic downturn as a result of this pandemic, we expect this problem to be compounded,” the students said in an announcement.
In an ordinary school year. teachers could quickly provide school supplies for students who weren’t able to purchase everything, but that will be impossible in a virtual setting.


“Our mission is to gather these school supplies so that students in our community can continue to be successful in their educational endeavors,” the announcement said.
There are several ways to participate:

VIRTUAL DONATIONS
You can see a list of supplies on our Amazon Wishlist at https://linktr.ee/fwmdback2school

“We are so excited to be partnering with our Fort Worth communities: Como, Stop 6, Northside and Diamond Hill. A donation can go a long way for these students. You are setting up the future doctors, nurses, teachers and more, for success,” the students said in their announcement.
