GMC- Augusta participates in annual holiday community programs
(The Veteran’s Club donated toys and a check for $275 to Toys for Tots.)
Every year, Georgia Military College – Augusta sponsors both the U.S. Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots and also the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program. However, new this year, the Crafts in Action club has also decided to crochet baby hats to donate to local hospitals. With three clubs involved in charitable giving, it is a great way for our school and our students to assist families in our community. The Veteran’s Club manages Toys for Tots and the Community Involvement club heads the Angel Tree Program.
This year, the Veteran’s Club placed collection bins all around campus to collect new, unwrapped toys for children in our area. Veteran’s Club President, Robert Studdard, also purchased toys to sell to GMC students. “We charged twice what we paid for them so that we can buy more toys and give Toys for Tots a check at the end of our fundraiser. I came up with the idea last year when I realized students are pretty busy with finals and might forget to buy toys on their own, so the Veteran’s Club makes it a little bit easier,” said Robert Stoddard, Veterans’ Club President. In the end, in addition to collecting plenty of toys, the Veteran’s Club was also able to present Toys for Tots a check for $275.
(The Community Involvement Club assisted local families through the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree mission.)
Similarly, the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree mission is also about assisting local families and children in need. Founded in 1982 by an ex-prisoner, the Angel Tree is actually a Prison Fellowship program that connects parents in prison with their children. Here at GMC, Missie Usry, the head of the Community Involvement Club, picks up angel tags from the Salvation Army to hang on a Christmas tree. This year, twelve angel tags were hung for students to collect in order to help fulfill a child’s Christmas wish list. Students also worked with their friends to collectively donate toys and clothes for the angels.
(The Crafts in Action Club crotched baby hats and will deliver them to the Augusta University Children’s Hospital.)
Newly formed this year, the Crafts in Action Club’s first project was crocheting baby hats. Although there were many newbies unfamiliar with crocheting, Mrs. Leia Bowman, Dean of Students, was able to teach the beginners where and how to start. In the end, we crocheted over 20 hats for newborns and are delivering them to the Augusta University Children’s Hospital this week.
