The Auxiliary of Manchester Memorial Hospital

The Auxiliary of Manchester Memorial Hospital was formed in 1923 as an organization dedicated to supporting the hospital. Since its inception, members of the Auxiliary have worked as volunteers at the hospital and also raise funds that are donated to the hospital to purchase equipment and enhance services.

The Auxiliary celebrated its 85th year of service in 2008 and to date has donated more than $4 million to Manchester Memorial Hospital. The Auxiliary also is involved with special services such as coordinating the Tree of Love during the holiday season, offering scholarships to high school students in the region, and running the Gift Shop at Manchester Memorial Hospital and The Penny Saver on Broad Street in Manchester.

Hundreds of men and women in the community are members of the Auxiliary. Membership dues are a nominal amount, and there is no pressure to be a more active member unless one wants to do so. Joining the Auxiliary is a way to give back to support the community and its community hospital.
