We have an outstanding Hospital Auxiliary! This awesome group of volunteers has supported the hospital with over $2,000,000 since they opened The Thrift Store. The funds have purchased everything from an ambulance to blanket warmers from infusion pumps to prizes for BINGO and basinets for our nursery.
They are tireless, well not quite but they give countless hours at the Thrift Store. Each volunteer takes pride in the store and their department. Visitors are often heard making comments about the products and cleanliness of the facility. Our Thrift Store has become a model for regional thrift stores. The group is often asked what the secret is.
Undoubtedly one of their secrets is the respect they have for each other and that they want to serve in a capacity that benefits their community. Another reason, they have fun, they giggle and joke while “working”. Some have even made the comment that it really isn’t work.
We also have several individuals and groups that volunteer at the hospital itself. The Baker Bunch treats the residents in our long term care area to songs that stir memories. They residents sing along accompanied by the band, as they tap out the beat and reminisce to the tunes they grew up with. We have the ladies who come in and call BINGO, and a couple of gentlemen that enjoy making breakfast for the residents. We are also delighted to have individuals who come in and treat the ladies to manicures or anyone who cares to may find one of the local beauticians present to give him a haircut or for the ladies a new hairstyle.
