“Our goal is to have happiness. Honestly, even with money as an option our ultimate goal is happiness."
“For example, if I buy the new Xbox that comes out, I’ll be happy but it’ll only last a few months, then it fades."
"So if money wasn’t an option it would be the same thing only there would be one less factor involved."
"Instead of looking out to the outside world and trying to accumulate as much as possible to see if we can collect as much as we can to be happy, we would be looking inside more often to try to become better people.”
-Vamsi Reddy

Athletics Raises Awareness

AUGUSTA, Ga. -The Peach Belt Conference match-up that took place at the Augusta University Christianberry Fieldhouse Thursday night involved the Augusta Jaguars and the Montevallo Falcons. The Volleyball match-up allowed the Department of Advanced Studies & Innovation to join with the Athletics Department to host a drive for SafeHomes of Augusta in order to raise awareness towards domestic violence.

Safe Homes is a domestic violence intervention shelter but they are more than just a shelter. Their mission is to transform victims into survivors. They dedicate their services to support victims of domestic violence regardless of where they are in life. The victim’s safety is always their first priority. All of their services are free and everything remains confidential.

Fans came out to Christenberry to support their teams as well as the cause. Clint Bryant, the Director of Intercollegiate Athletics says, “Volleyball is universal and can be used for the most good.” Players and fans donated money and items such as toys, diapers and clothing.

Safe Homes fulfilled their goal in raising awareness and educating those who came out to support the Lady Jags. “Awareness was the main concern in partnering with the Athletics Department,” stated Rebecca Rodriguez, the director for Safe Homes of Augusta.

If you or anyone you may know is experiencing domestic violence or would like to know what is defined as domestic violence please visit the Safe Homes webpage www.safehomesdv.org or call 706-736-2499
