Jefferson Healthcare Hospital Auxiliary Donates Over $13,000 to Jefferson Healthcare

The Jefferson Healthcare Hospital Auxiliary is pleased to announce they have donated $13,836.27 to Jefferson Healthcare.  Each year, the Auxiliary Board meets to discuss their annual giving based on their fund raising activities.  The majority of the funds come from the Hospital Gift Shop sales.

Since 1976, the Jefferson Healthcare Hospital Auxiliary has generated nearly $1 million in funds through its various activities.  The most prominent fund raising activity is the operation of the Hospital Gift Shop.  The Gift Shop is managed and operated solely by the volunteer staff and the Auxiliary Board.  The Gift Shop is open during the week and has a wide selection of cards, gifts, jewelry, home décor, gifts, candy, and so much more.  The proceeds from sales go directly to Jefferson Healthcare to fund equipment, supplies, and scholarships.

“Thanks to our hardworking, dedicated volunteers in the Gift Shop, we are able to support the hospital with equipment and supplies which otherwise might fall to the back of the line in budgeting priorities.  We are very proud to help all the various services and departments that support our community health,” said Rosemary Nielsen, President of the Hospital Auxiliary.

Gift Shop Volunteers are:  President Rosemary Nielsen, Vice President Brenda Buck, Treasurer Barb Clarberg, Secretary Pattie Cole, Cathe Clapp, Karen Harvey, Nancy Kelly, and Marilyn O’Meara

This year, the Auxiliary is pleased to support the purchase of the following equipment and supplies:

  • Family Birth Center: Bariatric Recliner
  • General Surgery: Air Curtain
  • Dietary: Kitchen Towels and Table Cloths
  • Hospitalists: Probe for Ultrasound
  • JH Sheridan Clinic: Vital Sign Monitor
