Hospital Auxiliary

 

Mission

Holy Spirit Hospital Auxiliary is a volunteer organization dedicated to supporting the health system in providing high-quality health services to the communities in the greater central Pennsylvania area.

History

Since 1964 the Hospital Auxiliary has promoted the interests and welfare of Holy Spirit Hospital through fundraising, educational programs and social activities. Thanks to the efforts of countless volunteers, we have contributed more than $3 million for the benefit of patients and the community.

Membership

The Auxiliary is a diverse group of more than 200 men and women of all ages. Members’ individual talents are recognized and used through their participation in Auxiliary projects and committees. As a member, you receive invitations to all Auxiliary events, a quarterly newsletter and the opportunity to help us support the health system’s programs and services.

Each year the Auxiliary holds several annual fundraising events and service-oriented programs that rely on the talents of our volunteers.
