In photos: Annual Friendsgiving brings students, faculty together for Values Week

As part of Augusta University’s third annual Values Week, on Nov. 10 and Nov. 13, Cafe 209 provided a turkey dinner to students and staff. The event featured live music and crafts.

The week celebrated AU’s six institutional core values of collegiality, compassion, excellence, inclusion, leadership and integrity. Two donation drives continue past Values Week.

Blankets are being collected to be given to patients who are in the hospital during the holidays. Blankets must be new (homemade items cannot be accepted)and can be any size, pattern or fabric. Help spread comfort and joy to the inpatients at AU Health this holiday season.

Children’s books are also being collected to be given to low-income students at Jenkins-White Elementary School. Many of these students do not have their own books at home. The goal of this initiative is to send every child home with books for the holiday break.

Drop-off locations for both of these drives are at Greenblatt Library on the Health Sciences Campus and Reese Library on the Summerville Campus.
