Volunteer

The volunteer program is a venture of the Hazel Hawkins Memorial Hospital Auxiliary. The Auxiliary was formed in 1950 at the request of the Hospital Trustees. Doctor’s wives participated, and eventually other civic minded ladies joined them to raise funds for equipment, as well as other needed services for the Hospital. The Auxiliary holds  fundraisers in the Spring and Fall and the proceeds from these as well as those from the Gift Shop and Hazel’s Treasures are passed on to the hospital.

Funds raised by the Auxiliary provide:

  • Hospital equipment
  • Refurbishment of patient areas
  • Scholarships for medically related studies

Volunteers

  • Associate volunteers support the Auxiliary by paying dues.
  • Active volunteers support the Auxiliary by active involvement, volunteering their time to hospital- related projects and events.
