Raising Funds to Support Our Hospital

Over the years the Island Hospital Auxiliary has supported innumerable programs and projects as well as kept the community informed about the hospital. One shining example is the Lifeline program. Through the efforts of the Island Hospital Auxiliary, Lifeline services are provided to individuals who are unable to pay.

For more information about Lifeline, call 293-7563 or click here.

The Auxiliary also purchases needed hospital equipment or provides monetary support for facility upgrades. Over the past few years, the group has purchased Surgery Department furnishings, a special chair for the Intensive Care Unit, a stand-up scale and a pediatric bed.

Currently the Auxiliary focuses on five main fundraisers:

  • Candygrams on Valentines Day (February)
  • Penny Drive (July)
  • Mini-Christmas Tree Sale (November)
  • Christmas Bake Sale (December)
