MISSION STATEMENT
The Hospital Auxiliary assists the hospital in any way possible. We offer our services and provide fund raising activities to help purchase medical equipment and other special needs.


SERVICES
Each Tuesday, Auxiliary members gather in the Continuing Care Unit to play bingo and generally socialize with the patients/clients. Each special occasion is celebrated with a party and at Christmas, Santa and his elves present all with a gift. Also at Christmas, newborn babies are presented to their moms in a giant red stocking.


FUND RAISING
The Sensenbrenner Hospital Auxiliary operates a Gift Shop in the front lobby. We are open on a daily basis, volunteer staff permitting. Hospital Equipment Lottery Program for People (HELPP) sells tickets in the lobby every Tuesdays from 13:00 to 16:00 and on Thursdays from 13:00 to 16:00, as well as at any special function of the Auxiliary. The program is very popular with the staff and public, and generates a large amount of money. On an annual basis, the Auxiliary holds a Hey Day in September, Gift Shop Open House in November and a Bake Sale in December. Our fundraising gives us the opportunity to purchase hospital equipment which we choose from the capital equipment list.


BURSARIES
In 1995, the Auxiliary started its Annual Bursary Program. One bursary of $1,000.00 is given to each of the three local high schools for the graduating student(s) entering a career in the health field and who meet the criteria established by the Auxiliary.
