Hospital Auxiliaries have been fundraising for hospitals for decades. Dedicated volunteers do everything from visiting and guiding patients around the hospitals to running charity thrift shops, gift shops and organizing fundraising events. Their goal; to improve the quality of life for patients and raise as much money as possible to purchase medical equipment.
Don’t think of them as retired, quiet folks. You will be surprised by their vibrant energy, stamina, and their fundraising power to assist the health care system. They enjoy their jobs and they make an incredible difference in and for their communities. The South Okanagan Similkameen Medical Foundation salutes the five Auxiliaries throughout the region. On behalf of the board of directors, staff, medical personnel and especially the patients and their families; thanks to all the volunteers for their dedication and support.
