The Monroe County Hospital Auxiliary was founded in 1973.
The Auxiliary provides opportunities for adults to volunteer at the hospital. More than 24 members of diverse ages and backgrounds volunteer their time to provide support in different areas of the hospital.

We manage The Peppermint Tree Gift Shop, provide assistance in the Radiology Department, read to the patients, assist with health fairs and Red Cross Blood Drives, decorate the hospital for Christmas, maintain the flowers at the front entrance of the hospital, and provide patients with welcome bags.

The Auxiliary also raises money to help support various hospital requests with annual fundraising events that include a soup lunch, a masquerade jewelry sale, a linen sale, and book sale.

The Auxiliary also helps the local community by assisting needy families during Christmas, raising money for the Relay for Life, and giving to the Gale V. "Buzz" Tanner Scholarship.

Since October of 2012, the Auxiliary has contributed to the following to the hospital:

$2500 towards the purchase of TVs for patient rooms
$2684.80 for a Sync. transmitter
$2240 for a floor scrubber
2000 to the Monroe County Hospital Foundation towards the purchase of a portable chest x-ray machine

We have also contributed the following to the community:
$1000 to Circle of Care
$100 to Relay for Life

This year the Auxiliary was able to host the spring District Meeting in March and were able to send 11 of our members to the Annual Hospital Association of Volunteers Meeting in Augusta, GA in October.

We are open to everyone and we are a very active group. I find volunteering is very fulfilling. When you do for others, you receive the biggest blessing. I hope you will consider becoming a member of our Auxiliary.
