Volunteers & Auxiliary
St. Mary's Volunteers are a gift to our healing Mission and a generous witness to the people served by their kindness and generosity. Our volunteers serve a variety of roles, from delivering patient mail to giving directions at the Information Desk to stuffing envelopes to driving shuttles in the parking lot and many other volunteer services that enhance the St. Mary's Experience.
In addition to the intangible benefits you receive from helping others, St. Mary's volunteers receive a number of other benefits, including:
- Annual Tuberculosis screening
- Discount meals in St. Mary's Cafeteria
- Discount on prescription drugs through St. Mary's Apothecary (where applicable)
- Free annual flu vaccination
- Discount at St. Mary's Gift Shoppe (some exclusions apply)
- Invitation to the Annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon
Since its founding in 1952, St. Mary’s Auxiliary has provided the funding, warmth, compassion and personal touches needed to further the Mission begun by the founders of St. Mary’s - the Daughters of Charity. The Auxiliary supports St. Mary's programs, projects and services by not only volunteering hundreds of hours annually, but also by raising funds through various fundraisers and proceeds from the Gift Shoppe. Some of the Auxiliary's activities include their Style Show, Book Sale and Christmas Tea. Projects supported by the Auxiliary include the Annual Achievement Award Scholarship for children of St. Mary’s associates, St. Mary’s journey to Magnet recognition, the Medical Library, the renovation of the Manor Auditorium and more.
The Auxiliary welcomes all people who understand the value of giving. Membership dues are $10 annually for active status which requires 25 hours of service. Lifetime status is granted to members contributing a one-time gift of $100. In addition to the benefits for all active volunteers, members receive four newsletters per year, a membership directory and invitations to all events and fundraisers.
