Augusta University’s VolunJAGS, the college volunteer program run through the Office of Volunteer Services and Engagement, is challenging all faculty, staff and fellow students to donate lightly used, current magazines to make a big difference for our patients and families.
These magazines will be regularly distributed in waiting rooms throughout the Medical Center in an effort to support the ongoing mission to build a more positive experience for patients while strengthening the ties between the hospital and university teams.
The Fall/Winter JagMag Challenge launches Monday, Sept. 10 and runs through Monday, Oct. 15. The top three individuals with the most donations will earn bragging rights, as well as some JagSwag!
Anyone interested in donating magazines can drop them off in the labeled bins located at the concierge desks at any of these six locations:
- Children’s Hospital of Georgia Entrance
- West Entrance of the Hospital – Entrance C
- South Entrance of the Hospital – Entrance A
- Professional Office Building
- Medical Office Building
- Second floor desk – in front of D elevators
All magazine labels will be covered for your privacy prior to distribution. When donating, please put the magazines in a bag with a completed donation form. Magazine donors will be provided with a thank you letter as well.
For hygiene reasons, magazines must be slick, glossy (no matte finish pages, please) and come from a smoke-free home. If the magazines are entertainment or news related, they should not be more than three months old. All other magazines such as Time, HGTV, Architectural Digest, Southern Living, etc. can be up to five years old. Magazines must also be free of political, religious and lewd themes.
