As The Auxiliary approaches its 80th anniversary, it continues to gain strength and vitality through the dedication, effort, energy, talent and creativity of its legion of volunteers, who have always been the bedrock of our organization.

Every day, numerous volunteers experience the satisfaction of “people helping people.” Their enthusiasm and dedication are intrinsic to sales outlets such as the Collectibles, Art and Antiquities Shop and the Milly Lande Gift Boutique, to hospital-wide services like the Mobile Food Cart and Book Cart, in the major events and sales that they help to organize, and much more.

The Auxiliary remains committed to supporting JGH healthcare programs, purchasing equipment, and ensuring that comfort and the essential personal touch are always priorities in patient care.
