With loyalty and enthusiasm for Standish Community Hospital, a small group of women founded the Auxiliary in 1972. It has willingly and tirelessly served the hospital and community through its efforts over the past 40 years. Since its inception, members of the Auxiliary continue to raise funds to purchase specialized medical equipment to enhance services, as well as volunteer their time working on special projects throughout the hospital.
To date, the Auxiliary has raised over a quarter million dollars. The monies have been used to purchase everything from wheelchairs to diagnostic equipment to redecorating projects.
Auxiliary members are very proud of their accomplishments and are actively involved as volunteers within the hospital by managing and operating the Gift Shop, helping with various community relations and special events projects, and lending a hand wherever needed. Their hard work and dedication make a positive difference not only within St. Mary's of Michigan Standish Hospital, but for those who live and work in the community.
The Auxiliary meets monthly and plans special events and fundraisers ranging from Golf Tournaments to Jewelry Sales. Membership in the Auxiliary is open to anyone who is interested. All that is required is the payment of the $5.00 annual dues. Members participate in as many projects as they choose.
The Auxiliary invites you to become a member today!
