‘Augie’s Pop of Kindness Day’ will look a little different this year

By Staff Reports

(Victor Valley)– “Augie’s Pop of Kindness Day,” presented by the CSUSB Staff Council, will take place at 1 p.m.  Thursday, Aug. 20, on campus for essential workers and virtually on Zoom for those working remotely.

Last year was the inaugural “Augie’s Pop of Kindness Day” to honor the legacy of kindness that Augie Hartung emulated, and the CSUSB Staff Council didn’t want staff to miss out because we are under different circumstances.

Popsicles will be available at five designated locations on campus for essential workers to pick up.  There will also be a special edition of Staff Chat, where staff can come, popsicles in hand, to share Augie’s spirit of kindess.

Augie served as associate director of Facilities Services from 2001-2006 and exemplified the concept of caring and service through his thoughtful acts, such as handing out popsicles on hot days.

Essential worker popsicle locations will be:

  • Facilities Services, front lobby;
  • Library, near circulation desk;
  • Sierra Hall, near HR;
  • University Hall, first floor, near OTR; and
  • University Police Department, main entrance.

The Staff Chat link  can be accessed on Zoom from a PC, Mac, Linux, iOS or Android at : https://csusb.zoom.us/j/98156835913 (the password will be sent to campus listserv). Please set a reminder on your calendar.
