Augusta University Day of Service: In photos

Augusta University faculty, staff and students turned out in force to help organizations across the Augusta area for AU’s annual Day of Service.

According to Tina Baggott, associate vice president of Volunteer Services and Community Engagement, more than 1,300 volunteers registered to help at 35 Augusta-area organizations. Projects included gardening, painting, repairing woodwork, taking care of animals, and playing games with veterans and disabled people.

“The 2019 Day of Service was a day of inspiration and community connections. There is nothing better than seeing neighbors helping neighbors in the spirit of friendship and community,” Baggott said. “We are so grateful for every student, employee, and family member that took the time to be a part of this important community outreach event. The Jaguar spirit is really a spirit of service.”

Volunteers were treated to a cookout lunch on the Summerville Campus as a thank you from the university.
