In 2022, more than 1,100 volunteers participated in Days of Service, Augusta University’s annual community service project.

Days of Service registration open for university employees, students

Volunteers looking forward to helping out with Augusta University’s Days of Service, can still register for the various service projects across the CSRA. Registration will remain open through Oct. 20.

Days of Service is a dedicated month of volunteer service across our communities, giving students, employees and their families the opportunity to discover new ways to support those in the community who need it most. Days of Service will be hosted throughout the month of November.

There are more than 40 projects supporting about 30 community organizations, including museums, hospitals, animal shelters, food banks, youth and family centers. Volunteers can work as individuals or as part of a team.

“AU Days of Service is something I look forward to every year,” said Corey Rogers, executive director of the Lucy Craft Laney Museum of Black History. “Being the executive director of a museum with a small staff, we often rely on volunteers to assist us with certain projects. AU Days of Service always comes through in a big way. We at the Lucy Craft Laney Museum of Black History and Conference Center cherish our ongoing partnership with Augusta University and look forward to a sustained one for years to come.”

New projects this year include assisting the Greater Augusta Arts Council in sculpture and mural cleaning, garden landscaping at the Burn Foundation of America, a reading day with Oak Ministries, storage cleanup with Via Cognitive Health and assisting the Boys & Girls Club with cleaning and painting projects.

There are also several donation drives which benefit SafeHomes Domestic Violence Center, Christ Community Health Services, Open Paws Pantry, Hope House and Wellstar MCG Health Center for Patients and Families.

Kristina Baggott, associate vice president for the Office of Volunteer Services and Community Engagement, knows the importance of volunteering in the community and how it can be a win-win for everyone.

“Engaged service and volunteerism are important ways for our faculty and staff to strengthen partnerships in the community while giving our students the opportunity to make a meaningful impact in a way that contributes to their education and future career goals,” said Baggott. “When we can work together to strengthen our shared campus and community, we all win.”
