Augusta Volunteers Pool Resources to Benefit Local Cancer Research


Taking time out of one's daily routine to help others is something most people wish to do. However, time restrictions present obstacles from making this a reality.

Augusta employees are the exception, however, as a yearlong effort to reach out to local organizations in need yielded plenty of chances to volunteer in 2012.

More than 10 employees — and numerous spouses — helped clean the local Ronald McDonald House, participated in the Miracle Mile Breast Cancer Walk, or collected and donated food and gifts for families during the holidays.

As part of the CSX Dollars for Doers program, each CSX employee received $10 per volunteer hour to donate to a charity chosen by the employee. Rather than dispersing small amounts to various charities, the decision was made to pool funds and donate to a local hospital for cancer research.

"Everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer," said Dennis Havens, Augusta conductor. "It's a worthy cause we're all concerned about, so it was an excellent idea."

The Dollars for Doers program provides funding to eligible community organizations and schools where CSX employees are active volunteers. Dollars for Doers is CSX's way of supporting essential services in the communities where its employees live and work. Employees must volunteer at least 15 hours and can receive a contribution for up to 40 hours of volunteer work per year – for up to $400 per year.

"I enjoy working in the community because a lot of organizations are sometimes underfunded or under- staffed," Havens said. "I enjoy helping when I can. It's nice to be involved because it opens your eyes to what's going on around you."
