Learn new skills, make new friends and feel a sense of accomplishment, knowing that you have made an invaluable contribution to the hospital and our mountain community. The Auxiliary’s gift of time and money has enabled the hospital to purchase equipment that would not have been possible with patient revenue alone.
Comprised of more than 60 volunteers, the Auxiliary donates approximately 14,000 hours of their time and raises $30,000 annually, to help fund equipment upgrades and improvements. To date they have given over $400,000 to MCH! We are so grateful for them!!!

Volunteer of the Year for 2018-2019
Allene DuFour is an artist, an innovator and a photographer. Lucky for us, volunteerism is a natural part of her life. She participates in everything Auxiliary – from bake sales to Christmas tree decorating to working in the front office. She’s held the positions of Recording Secretary and Past President and most recently, she served as Parliamentarian. She continues as the Auxiliary’s historian, documenting their events through photographs. The Auxiliary and the hospital have benefited from her wide range of interests and talents and we are so lucky to have her in our community!
