Volunteers Essential to the Lydia Project

Posted: Updated:

Did you know there's a place in Augusta where women getting cancer treatments can stay for free? It's part of the Lydia Project.

And today, volunteers spent time sewing tote bags for cancer patients.  Anyone who likes to sew was encouraged to bring their machine and let their creativity run wild!

The youth group from Journey Community Church also volunteered at Lydia today.  The non-profit has prayerfully supported women with cancer, anywhere in the world, since 2003.

This year, the Lydia House opened at 1369 Interstate Parkway, near Doctors Hospital. It can accommodate up to ten patients, and their caregivers, at a time.

Executive Director Michele Canchola says the Lydia Project always welcomes volunteers.

"Our outreach is to women with any type of cancer and our services  range from support every month for a year, receipt of a tote, help with electric bill, prescriptions, and now our lodging services."

If you have an interest in donating your time and talents, give them a call at (706) 736-5467 or just go to their website by clicking here.
