As National Volunteer Week 2020 approaches, the Office of Volunteer Services and Community Engagement looks forward to recognizing and thanking our volunteers in a virtual way this year.
National Volunteer Week is celebrated from April 20-25 at hospitals around the world, though Augusta University will be going even bigger by spotlighting and showing our appreciation to volunteers throughout the week and into the month of May as well.
Virtual Volunteer Recognition allows the medical center and university to thank and celebrate our volunteers’ hard work while still complying with social distancing standards to keep everyone safe and healthy.
“Our volunteers mean so much to us, the patients they serve as well as the faculty and staff they work with. We want to make sure they know how much everyone values them,” said Vanessa White, volunteer program manager.
The office of Volunteer Services and Engagement has several plans to celebrate with the theme that volunteers make a world of difference. Be on the lookout to share in the celebration and appreciation we are giving to our AU volunteers.
