The MCH Auxiliary has more than 200 active volunteers. Their history of involvement and support of the hospital goes back to the 1950s, when the community was raising funds to build the hospital. The purpose of the MCH Auxiliary is to promote and to advance the welfare of Memorial Community Hospital & Health System. This is accomplished in a variety of ways. The rewards of volunteering include:
Memorial Community Hospital has a beautiful and contemporary gift shop on their main campus. The gift shop is continually stocked with a variety of new and seasonal items. Since the gift shop is staffed by volunteers, hours sometimes vary based on the their availability, but is most often open Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. If you are looking for a volunteer opportunity, working
in the gift shop is fun and a great way to give back to the community.
Located at 238 S. 13th Street in Blair, the MCH&HS Auxiliary Closet is a thrift store staffed by employees and volunteers. Donated items from the community are used to stock the store. All
proceeds from the store are reinvested in MCH&HS. Your money stays in town to help those in your community! Hours of operation are:
The Annual MCH&HS Auxiliary Rummage Sale is typically held annually in September at the Washington County Fairgrounds in Arlington, NE. Over the years, thousands of shoppers have attended the sale. Donated items are split into various departments, including clothing, books, dishes, furniture, linens, notions, shoes, toys, cards, and jewelry. The MCH&HS Auxiliary works hard to ensure all leftover items are recycled or repurposed so that very little from the sale gets thrown away. Volunteers are always needed and welcomed! Trucks and trailers are also needed yearly to help move donations from Blair to Arlington the week of the sale. Please contact Kim Dutton at
Service League volunteers assist Memorial Community Hospital staff by greeting patrons as they come to Memorial Community Hospital. Additional duties of Service League volunteers include delivering materials, escorting patients, helping departments with various duties, and helping guests find their way.
Volunteers are a very important component of our hospice program at MCH&HS Home Health and Hospice. They provide extra physical and emotional support to terminally-ill patients and their families during a very difficult time. Through compassion and skillful caring, they help make life more meaningful.
