Auburn Graduates Postpone Wedding and Write Letters to Patients in Isolation
Although Macy Armstrong and Harrison Reeves graduated from Auburn University and were excited to get married, they had to postpone their ceremony until September due to COVID-19.
“Harrison and I thought what better way to make the best of the situation than to give back to our community,” Armstrong, a social work major, explained.
Reeves, an alumnus of the College of Sciences and Mathematics (COSAM), was also a COSAM Leader.
“We were trying to do something positive in our community in Dothan, Alabama. So, we reached out to a nurse that works at a hospital in our community to see if we could help,” Reeves shared. “We figured out that most of the COVID-19 patients were in isolation from their family and friends due to the virus. We decided to write letters to the patients in the hospital to try to give them the love and support they need. We reached out to our community as well as on Facebook, and many others have sent in letters as well supporting the cause. We hope that this can make a difference in lives of these patients by letting them know the community cares about them!”

“We loved giving back and hope we inspire others to do the same,” Armstrong added.
