Editor’s note: All spots for Day of Service have been filled as of Oct. 16.

Though general registration for this year’s Day of Service is closed, two additional project sites have been added, so if you haven’t already registered, it’s not too late to “lend a paw.”

Day of Service is the annual event where students, employees and families of Augusta University come together to make a difference in our community. It’s one of the many ways we share our spirit of service and lend a paw to those who need it the most.

Service project sites still available for volunteers:

Bridge Ministry of the CSRA (20 volunteer slots available)

11:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Nov. 2, under the Calhoun Expressway at 15th Street

Volunteers will be distributing hot meals to about 200 homeless and inner-city people in the downtown Augusta area. We will also be supplying hygiene products, take-home snacks and clothing. 

Golden Harvest Food Bank Master’s Table Soup Kitchen (25 volunteer slots available)

9 a.m.-noon Nov. 2, The Master’s Table garden area, 702 Fenwick St.

Volunteers will help provide fresh, nutritious food to the less fortunate in downtown Augusta by helping weed, harvest vegetables, add compost and prepare the beds for spring planting.

More than 1,300 volunteers have registered for this year’s event. The additional volunteer space is limited and slots will go quickly, so register now.
