You can do it using group policy preferences, see the blog below for screenshots of the process

Test it on a few PCs or in a lab first before doing it domain wide so you get a feel for it.

Thanks

so I followed the steps in the screenshots but the folder doesn't populate. What actually pushes the folder to the C drive of a domain computer?

You have to link the GPO to where the computer is.  I'd setup a test OU move a PC there and link the GPO to that OU.

Thanks
