We have one of the most active and well-organized Auxiliaries in the state of Kansas. Our strength lies in our volunteers! They are all totally dedicated to the hospital and the Auxiliary, and give freely of themselves and their time. For the last several years, an average of 100 active volunteers have contributed right at 20,000 hours of their time, serving in all areas of the hospital. The RMH Gift Shop is the Auxiliaries primary source of income, along with Tiny Treasures(baby pictures), the Christmas Homes Tour, bake sales, book sales, and scrub/uniform sales. The money raised is donated back to the hospital through purchase of hospital equipment, contributions to new and expanded facilities, or to provide scholarships to Franklin County healthcare students.
Types of Membership
The Associate and Business Memberships are for those persons/businesses unable to volunteer within the hospital setting, but who want to be a part of the organization.
The Active Membership is for persons who want to be directly involved with the volunteer services offered within the hospital setting.
Whatever your schedule is, there is an area for volunteering for you. Recent research tells us that volunteering has a host of benefits for the individual, from reducing stress and anxiety to making a person physically healthier.
If you would be interested in joining and/or volunteering please contact the Director of Volunteer Services at (785) 229-8231 for more information and a volunteer application.
