Augusta Virginia College Students Help the Homeless

Helping the Homeless

Several Virginia College students recently took part in a free health clinic for homeless and indigent persons of the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA).  "Kneeling for Healing" at Good Samaritan Baptist Church in Augusta offers free haircuts, financial counseling, and assistance in finding a job. The students perform routine blood pressure readings, glucometer readings, and other health-related activities.

The Virginia College students were invited to assist in future programs, which take place every second Monday. To view local television news coverage featuring some of the students, go to the WRDW-TV website and select the video titled "Church brings local groups together to help homeless."
