Greg and Uma Chugha

Duke Hospital Auxiliary

Volunteer for 3 1/2 years

Greg and Uma Chugha have taken a very small business and turned it into a big opportunity to help people when they need it most. Once a week, without fail, for the last 3 ½ years, they’ve been operating the Just a Buck Cart for the Duke Hospital Auxiliary.  This cart makes the rounds of the clinic areas, offering snacks and drinks to patients and family members. 

The Chughas offer much more than the contents on their cart. Their kindness and their genuine concern for the people they serve make them truly important.  On one occasion, they took a grieving spouse under their wing, giving her home-cooked meals and rides to appointments for as long as she needed help. 

Thank you, Greg and Uma Chugha, for your compassion and generosity!
