A Very Special Donation

This past June, our Auxiliary received a very generous donation from the family of one of our beloved members, who had passed away. The Auxiliary Board asked CEO Tom Hayes what item of equipment, essential for patient care, is most needed currently; we didn’t want to wait until the end of the year to put this donation to work. We learned that the hospital’s diagnostic cardiac ultrasound equipment had failed – and, that this machine is essential to the hospital’s operations. At our July meeting, the Board voted to purchase a new echocardiogram machine, which will produce high quality digital pictures of the size, structure, and movement, of various parts of the heart. We want to thank our anonymous donor for making the purchase of this vital piece of equipment possible.


Nifty Thrifty’s New Manager

Matt Hamilton is the new manager at the Auxiliary’s thrift store, Nifty Thrifty. Matt is doing a great job of organizing our operation there. And, he’s been well received by the volunteers. The summer always brings an increase in our donations, but our dedicated volunteers have been managing to stay ahead of the mountain of items we have to sort through, clean, and prepare for sale. Thanks to our volunteers for their hard work and dedication, and thanks also to our community for supporting our mission with generous donations and for shopping at our Nifty Thrifty store!
