Our Auxiliary is a group of dedicated volunteers committed to supporting health care needs within the community. We have 74 volunteers, our Thrift Shop is our main fundraiser. which is run by 30 of our volunteers. COVID has not slowed down our busy little shop,the Shop provides a service to the community – receiving donations and providing low-cost purchasing options.

With funds raised this past year we have purchased 7 iPads for our Extended Care Unit to assist with communication. The families seem to really appreciate being able to connect with their loved ones. We have donated 8 TVs for our Acute Care beds at the local hospital. We have also donated a defibrillator to the local Fire Station and $1500 to Mental Health.
