Greater Augusta Back To School Program
Council: 334 - AUGUSTA
I volunteered to assist with the Greater Augusta Back To School Program held at the Augusta Civic Center parking lot. The event entailed the giveaway of backpacks filled with school supplies for students in grades from K to High School. It consisted of lining up motor vehicles and having them drive past either side of stations that were set up as distribution points for the packs. The different stations had appropriate supplies for all grades.
My duty was traffic control. I was positioned at the entrance to the parking lot and directed traffic into the lot. I worked in coordination with about 6 or 7 other volunteers. We made sure the traffic was lined up properly and flowed smoothly and safely to the distribution points.
The time that I spent at the event was 4 and a half hours.
