The Auxiliary of Brooks Memorial Hospital recently presented the hospital with a check for $30,000. Accepting the check was Jarrod Johnson, Chief Operating Officer of Brooks Memorial Hospital. This significant donation, which represents the proceeds from the Auxiliary's 2012-2013 fundraising efforts, is designated for various departments within the hospital.
The Auxiliary of Brooks Memorial Hospital is a volunteer organization whose primary purpose is to assist the hospital by providing funding for equipment and patient comfort programs. Funds donated by the Auxiliary are raised through book, toy, gift and jewelry sales held in the hospital lobby throughout the year, the ongoing membership drive, the Election Day spaghetti dinner, the Tree of Lights Remembrance Project and the annual dinner dance/auction. In addition the Auxiliary's Ready for School Campaign benefits area schools and students.
Membership in the Auxiliary of Brooks Memorial Hospital is always open. If you would like additional information on how to join, contact Lisa at 679-4774 or Joanna at 366-2973.
