To support the American Heart Association Walk, the Augusta University Libraries team participated in the American Heart Association CSRA Heart Walk on Saturday, March 10.

The Libraries also held several fundraisers over the past month to raise money for the AHA, to date a total of $1,277.

Whether you enjoyed a “Tussie-Mussie” or baked goodies at Reese Library; or a hot dog, or tried your luck in Starbucks and Jellybean Jar raffles at Greenblatt Library; signed a paper heart, or cheered Libraries’ personnel on during their two “Dress-Down” Days, we thank you for your support.

Should you wish, there is still time to donate to the Augusta University Libraries team!

  • Sign a Paper Heart – for sale at Reese and Greenblatt Libraries until the end of the week. Purchase a $1, $2, or $5 heart, sign your name, and we’ll add it to our Heart walls.
  • Jellybean Jar Raffle – at Greenblatt Library this week. Drawing on Friday.
  • Donate Online to the Libraries’ (Minimum online donation of $25).
