From the Office of Volunteer Services and Engagement:

Since our call for assistance for Hurricane Matthew evacuees went out this afternoon, the Augusta University family has responded in a big way!  Thank You!

With that in mind, we wanted to share some additional information that may be helpful as we move into the weekend and the need for volunteers and supplies grows.

The  new Augusta University volunteer hotline is ready for your calls.
Shelter volunteers are still needed over the weekend.  A dedicated Augusta University  volunteer hotline has now been established to answer volunteer questions and assist you with shelter assignments 24 hours a day.  The Augusta University volunteer hotline number is:  706-721-8099
