You will see our members in all areas of the hospital - from the Front Information Desk volunteers directing patients and family members to their destination to those who deliver newspapers throughout the hospital.
We have a small and mighty group who operate Lifeline. This for fee service provides their clients with access to outside assistance with the simple touch of a button. The Lifeline members install and maintain the equipment and supervise the billing and collection of fees.
Our talented and dedicated volunteers in the Craft group meet on a weekly basis and create beautiful items which they offer for sale at their Spring and Holiday Boutiques and Bake Sales. If you have never had a chance to attend one of their Boutiques, please watch the local newspaper for dates and locations - you will be pleasantly surprised.
Our members also operate the Gift Shop located off the main lobby of the hospital. We offer top quality merchandise which changes on a regular basis – why not stop by and see what is available? Our volunteers will greet you with a smile and help you pick just the right gift for yourself or someone else.
These services are the cornerstone of our money making projects and provide the means needed to support our Scholarship and Community Charitable Donation Programs. Our auxiliary provides scholarships to local residents pursuing an education in the medical field. In the past twenty seven years, we have helped many local recipients fund their higher education. Additionally, we have provided donations to qualified non-profit charities
in the community.
Four times a year, our auxiliary hosts Blood Drives for United Blood Services. These drives are held at the Aquatic Center and are enthusiastically supported by the community. Our hard working members coordinate the times, contact previous donors, man the check in tables and most importantly, make sure the cookies and juice are ready for those who donate.
In addition, our members assisted in the following areas of the hospital:
Cardiac Cath Lab; Chaplaincy; Dietary; Emergency Department; Front Information Desk - main hospital and east unit; Labor and Delivery; Outpatient Surgical Center and Patient Escort; Radiation/Oncology; Records Managements and Transportation.
Our members are asked to donate a minimum of 50 hours of service annually to the auxiliary. The majority of our services operate from 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Our volunteers work 4 hours shifts, from 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM and 12:00 PM – 4:00 PM. Additionally, Out Patient Services has volunteers on duty from 5:00 AM – 8:00 AM and Gift Shop is open on the weekends.
If you are a vital adult who has 4 hours a week to donate in service to others, we would encourage you to explore the benefits of volunteering at our local hospital. The Auxiliary office is staffed Monday – Friday from 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM. The Director of Volunteers is available on Wednesday morning to interview new members.
