Anderson Hospital’s Auxiliary presented the hospital with its annual donation during this month’s Auxiliary’s Annual Meeting.
The donation, which reflects funds raised in 2015, totaled $85,000. The annual donation is made possible through the Auxiliary Gift Shop, Life Line Program, the fund-raising projects of the Ways and Means Committee, vending machine sales, and the newborn photos program.
The Auxiliary has more than 200 active members and is an integral part of Anderson Hospital. Volunteers gave nearly 40,000 hours of service to Anderson Hospital in 2015.
Active volunteers provide direct services to the Emergency Department, Pavilion for Women and Outpatient Surgery. Volunteers are on call for assistance with many tasks throughout the hospital and provide information to visitors at several lobby entrances. Patients and visitors also enjoy the free shuttle service the Auxiliary provides Monday through Friday. In addition, the hospital’s Gift Shop is entirely operated by the Auxiliary.
In 2016, the Anderson Hospital Auxiliary celebrates 50 years of service.
