Auxiliary

Memorial Hospital Auxiliary was organized January 17, 1963. In the decades since its inception, the organization has raised and donated funds in excess of $1,000,000! With these contributions, Memorial Hospital Auxiliary has improved the services offered at the hospital, enhanced the quality of care, and helped control the cost of health care. If it were not for the Auxiliary, the cost for many services and much equipment would have to be passed on to those accessing the services of Memorial Community Health, Inc.

Fund raising by Memorial Hospital Auxiliary is primarily met by sales from the Thrift Shop. Opened in 1973, the Thrift Shop is responsible for generating the majority of the Auxiliary’s funds while providing an important service to the community by offering a convenient place to which the public may go to purchase needed items at bargain prices. The Thrift Shop is open on Thursday and Friday from 10 AM to 5 PM

In addition to fundraising, Memorial Hospital Auxiliary also provides much needed services to Memorial Community Health. Volunteers carry hospital mail, do sewing and mending for the hospital, arrange for groups to make centerpieces for Memorial Community Care and provide and rotate magazines in the waiting rooms. Once a month, birthdays of residents in Memorial Community Care are celebrated with entertainment and each honoree is presented a birthday corsage.

Membership is open to all persons that are interested in volunteer work for the good of Memorial Hospital, Memorial Health Clinics, Memorial Community Care and East Park Villa. Annual dues are $2.00 per year for active membership. A sustaining membership of $5.00 or more per year is available to anyone that wishes to support the organization, but cannot serve actively on any of the volunteer committees. New members are always welcome.
