2021 Walton Award Video – Honoring Phil & Marsha Jones
Phil & Marsha Jones were nominated for the 2021 Walton Award by community member Shep Gallagher who knew the Joneses from time together at Trinity on the Hill UMC. Since then, the Jones have served with St. Luke’s UMC in the Harrisburg neighborhood of Augusta, GA for the past 13 years. The Jones not only work with the church, but they also work with seemingly every other organization within the Harrisburg community to help the neighbors find homes, work, education, food and safety. Whenever they see a need, they try to find a way to help. Their dedication and creative solutions are truly making a difference in the Harrisburg neighborhood.

Walton Award in the News
Late in February, we had the honor of celebrating Phil & Marsha Jones as this year’s recipients of the George & Dorothy Walton Award. If you’ve been following this year’s award season news, then it comes as no surprise that this amazing couple were selected because of their relentless efforts and generous service to the Harrisburg neighborhood in Augusta, GA – primarily through their church, Saint Luke’s United Methodist Church, but also through many other non-profits in the area. They’ve rightly chosen to have the $5,000 in award funds donated to St. Luke’s to further support their work in Harrisburg.
