Volunteering at Community Hospital

About The Auxiliary

The Auxiliary predates the hospital and was active in fund raising prior to our opening. This organization has grown from a small group of women who solicited donations to realize the dream of Community Hospital in Munster, Indiana, to a membership of 280 men and women. The money raised from all current and past events goes for designated purposes that have changed as the hospital has grown and expanded. The Auxiliary Scholarship Fund also has given more than 250 scholarships, now valued at $2,000 each. The scholarships are awarded to children of hospital employees who meet the criteria and are preparing to enter the field of health care. To date the Community Hospital Auxiliary has provided more than $2 million in support! Funds are raised from: Red Garter Shoppe, Red Garter Gift Cart and fund raisers.
