Boy Scouts share colorful messages for #OurAUHeroes: In photos

Boy Scout Troop 643 from Evans took on a service project to bring a few smiles to health care workers at Augusta University Medical Center and the Children’s Hospital of Georgia.

On Saturday, Jan. 23, the Scouts created chalk drawings at the entrance to Children’s as well as the A, B, D and F entrances of AUMC.

The colorful messages were meant to show their gratitude for the hard work that #OurAUHeroes have done to fight COVID-19 over the past several months.

“I really hope it brought some cheer during these stressful times,” said Alice Lopez of the AU Health Pharmacy. “The boys and their families really enjoyed themselves.”
