Smoothies, meal donations appreciated by AU Health staff

Augusta University Health continues to receive donations for medical professionals and staff working to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. Meals have come from Panda Express, Fat Man’s Cafe & Catering, the Augusta Malayalee Association and Aldersgate United Methodist Church, along with 4,000 smoothies from Tropical Smoothie Cafe.

“The staff at AU Health are strong and working together tirelessly to care for our community through the pandemic,” said Regina Winters of the Center for Patients and Families at AU Health. “The support of the community is critical at this moment as it lets our staff know they are not alone in this fight and that someone is thinking of them at a time that is very different and very difficult.

“A donation of a meal to a unit or other goods such as drinks and snacks are needed and appreciated. In a busy day wearing protective equipment, some staff barely get a chance to stop for a break and having easily accessible nutrition makes all the difference,” Winters said. “Please consider reaching out to make a donation!”
