For over 85 years the Volunteer Association has been supporting our local hospital rewarded by the satisfaction that we make a difference. Our time is committed to a variety of services: Emergency, Patient Feeding, Perioperative, Portering, Dialysis, Diagnostics, Plants & Flowers, Volunteen Program (15-19 years of age) learning about opportunities in the health care field. Last year there were over 23,000 volunteer hours.
Since 1953, thru our fundraising efforts we have donated over $1.6 million to the hospital. Before 1953 the Auxiliary simply bought items for the hospital and did not formally record their good deeds.
Each fiscal year, we choose a project or equipment to support with our annual donation.
Our fundraising activities all support the work of the Foundation, although our donation goes directly to the Hospital. We concentrate on fundraising activities such as the in-hospital Gift and Coffee Shops, HELPP lottery tickets, a 50-50 draw, and a Penny Drive. We finished off the fiscal with our Gourmet Dinner and food tasting event ‘Temptations’.
