Join us in making a difference!
Volunteering is the greatest gift you can give. It’s also a great way to meet new people, use the skills you’ve acquired over a lifetime—even learn new skills. Enjoy the satisfaction of knowing you are making a significant difference in the lives of people in your community, become a volunteer!
Founded in 1953, The GMHC Auxiliary supports the hospital in achieving its vision of transforming the health and wellness of the communities we serve with personalized and convenient care. From volunteering in the GMHC Gift Shop to helping with fundraising activities, our auxiliaries are invaluable to GMHC.
Please note Auxiliary fundraising events are currently postponed due to COVID-19.
Auxiliary Activities Include:
- Awarding three $500 scholarships each year to GMHC employees or community members who wish to continue their education or start a new career in health care
- Supporting Red Ribbon Week at local schools
- Easter Basket sales
- Christmas Bazaar
- Monthly Walking Tacos fundraiser for GMHC staff
The Auxiliary welcomes new members anytime throughout the year. Membership is $10 annually and open to all interested adults who want to volunteer their time and talents. Whether you are a crafter, a baker, or you just enjoy people and want to help in any way possible, the Auxiliary needs you.
Meetings are held the fourth Tuesday of each month at 1:30 p.m. in the GMHC Education Center.
