Jefferson Healthcare Hospital Auxiliary Donates $18,000 to Jefferson Healthcare

Jefferson Healthcare Hospital Auxiliary is pleased to announce that they have donated $18,020 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.

“We set our goal a year ago to make this donation from 2017 Gift Shop proceeds.  Thanks to our hardworking, dedicated volunteers that work the Gift Shop, we were able to meet that goal.  We are very proud that we could help all the various departments that will benefit from our donation,” said Barb Clarberg, Gift Shop Volunteer.

Gift Shop Volunteers are:  Rosemary Nielsen, *Barb Clarberg, *Patty Cole, *Brenda Buck, Dee Lickar, Betty Kay Landaker and Jan Navone.

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

  • Acute Care Unit: Therapeutic Blankets
  • Emergency Department:  Stryker Wheel Chairs
  • Exercise for Health: NuStep
  • Family Birth Center: Sleeper Sofa
  • House Supervisor/Acute Care Unit: Quilts
  • Jefferson Healthcare Internal Medicine:  High/Low Exam Table
