Augusta University wants your help thanking #OurAUHeroes

In an effort to thank Augusta University’s essential personnel for working hard on the front lines, we would like to say thank you to “Our AU Heroes.”

The Augusta-area community is being encouraged to share messages and use the hashtag #OurAUHeroes on all forms of social media to spread the love and say thank you to the people working hard during the COVID-19 outbreak.

We are also asking children to send handwritten cards that will be handed out to essential personnel. Those cards can be sent to: Patient Care Services Administration, 1120 15th St., Augusta, GA 30912.
