Being an Auxiliary Volunteer at Holy Family Hospital is rewarding and challenging experience. The Auxiliary was formed in 1957 to support the mission of the hospital. The organization provides charitable financial support and volunteers serve in a variety of key roles to enhance that mission.

Since the doors opened in September of 1990, the Thrift Shop has been a significant income generator for the Auxiliary. As a resource to the community, it accepts clothing and other household items for resale. The Thrift Shop supports many charitable donations throughout the year including fundraisers and vouchers for nonprofit organizations, and those in need.

In it's 65-year history, the Auxiliary has donated over $7M to the hospital. The gifts have enabled the hospital to purchase state-of-the art medical equipment, fund expansion projects, and renovate patient care areas.
