Madison Patrick embodies The Auburn Creed.

This biomedical sciences major, who also works as an Undergraduate Research Ambassador in the College of Sciences and Mathematics (COSAM), is helping those get groceries and medicine delivered through 'Leave It To Us’ — a new Auburn chapter.

The chapter helps those who need it most. Her efforts simply amplify this line from The Auburn Creed:

I believe in the human touch, which cultivates sympathy with my fellow men and mutual helpfulness and brings happiness for all.

Patrick is diligently working to build up the volunteer base.

“Our student volunteers provide free delivery of groceries and prescriptions to seniors and immunocompromised individuals,” she explained.

The new chapter helps to ensure people at high-risk are able to get through this difficult time.

“Students or anyone from our community can volunteer and give back,” Patrick added. “I believe in the human touch, and during this COVID-19 period there is nothing better than to help those who need basic necessities and cannot risk getting them. I can help our community and touch the lives of people who are absolutely grateful for our help.”
