Volunteer

The volunteer program is a venture of the Hazel Hawkins Memorial Hospital Auxiliary. The Auxiliary was formed in 1950 at the request of the Hospital Trustees. Doctor’s wives participated and eventually other civic minded ladies joined them to raise funds for equipment, as well as other needed services for the Hospital. The Auxiliary holds an annual bazaar/luncheon in the late fall and the proceeds from this as well as those from the Gift and Thrift shops are passed on to the hospital.

Funds raised by the Auxiliary provide:

  • Hospital equipment
  • Refurbishment of patient areas
  • Scholarships for medically related studies

 

Volunteers

  • Associate volunteers support the Auxiliary by paying dues.
  • Active volunteers support the Auxiliary by active involvement in volunteering their time to hospital- related projects and events.
