Hospital auxiliary commits to another big project and needs volunteers

Auxiliaries have made great contributions to the well being of clients and staff ever since hospitals were first established on Vancouver Island in the mid 1800s

Auxiliaries have made great contributions to the well being of clients and staff ever since hospitals were first established on Vancouver Island in the mid 1800s.

Now the Campbell River Hospital Thrift and Gift Shops are getting ready to raise $40,000 for renovations in the Sunshine Wellness Outpatient Centre and they’re calling on the community to find volunteers to help with is project.

This important renovation includes the construction of two medical specialists’ offices, furnishing them with stretchers and other necessary equipment.

Other renovations include the addition of two washrooms and a free standing office in the foyer area.

The $40,000 commitment was agreed to at the June meeting of the Campbell River Hospital Auxiliary.

The money will be raised through sales at the Hospital Gift Shop and Thrift Shop, both of which are in significant need of volunteers.

If you would be interested in volunteering one three-hour shift per week, contact the Hospital Volunteer Department at 250-850-2420 or Volunteer Campbell River at 250-287-8111.

Volunteers are an important part of the VIHA family and are valued members of the health care team; providing selfless service and dedication and helping to make our hospitals and residential care facilities better places.
