110 Years of Supporting Healthcare

On May 1, 1911, the Hospital Board asked the women of the Fraser Valley to form a Hospital Auxiliary. There were thirty-eight women present and four members of the board. The women had been fundraising since 1908 to build a hospital.

“The objects of the Auxiliary are to assist the Board of directors in maintaining the Hospital, and to forward its interests in any way considered desirable by the Auxiliary.”

The Constitution and By-Laws of the Chilliwack Hospital Auxiliary

All women were welcome to become members of the Auxiliary, just as they are today.

Auxiliary Day May 10, 2020 – COVID Style

Every year the Auxiliary has a bake sale to celebrate Auxiliary Day May 10. We couldn’t do that this year so we had to come up with another plan.

Beckie Evans, Our new volunteer coordinator, Karen Holden, President and Debbie Tracey, Vice-President and Robert from Fraser Valley Health care Foundation.

We decided to celebrate Auxiliary Day on Friday May 8, 2020 by doing so in the safest way possible. We got permission from CGH Administration so I bought the hanging basket and made a thank you sign. We put all the names of the different departments of the hospital into a bowl. Our new volunteer liaison Beckie Evans drew the name and the winner was the Emergency Dept. We then got their manager Kim Choi to meet us and we handed the basket over to her. She then went back to her Dept and drew a name from all her staff. Christine was the winner.

Drawing a name.

Thanks to Debbie Tracey for assisting me and also on hand was Robert from Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation. He’s holding our green BCAHA bag because it matched his shirt. This photo will be sent to BCAHA next year for the photo contest.

The Emergency Dept was very appreciative. This was a small effort on our part to thank all the hospital essential workers for their hard work and dedication over the past few months.

Presenting the flower basket to Kim, the head of the Emergency Department.

We look forward to the day when we can safely open the Thrift Shoppe and welcome back our customers. In the meantime please check out our Facebook and Instagram.

Some facts about the Chilliwack Hospital Auxiliary

So many opportunities to give back with the Chilliwack Hospital Auxiliary! The Hospital Auxiliary has been helping Chilliwack since 1911. Read a bit about our history.

Primary Goal

Our primary goal is to donate money to the Chilliwack Hospital for equipment which recently included the new CT Scanner. Each Christmas we contribute to the various hospital departments such as Parkholm, Cedar Park, Psychiatric Department, Heritage Village and Bradley Centre.

Bursaries

We also give out 12 bursaries each year to deserving students entering a medical profession.

How We Help

Our regular programs include the Information Desk, Ambulatory Day Care Program, PATH (Patient Assistance to Home) Tea Service, Palliative Care, Companionship Visiting Program, Outpatient Diabetes Clinic and we also added some new programs such as Paediatric Unit and Maternity.

Knitting Case

Our knitting case by the front desk is operated solely by the Auxiliary and with the generous help of the Chilliwack Community ladies, we receive beautifully knitted baby clothes which we sell to raise money for the hospital. There are opportunities to knit for us and sell these items.

Thrift Shoppe

Our Thrift Shoppe at 9236 Main St. requires several volunteers to keep the Shoppe operating smoothly each day that it’s open so there are plenty of opportunities to help.

Bake Sales

In addition to these money-makers, we hold bake sales at the Vendors Corner in the hospital each May and November and such fundraisers as pub nights and selling Purdy Chocolates etc.

Meetings

We have changed the frequency of our monthly meetings to once every three months to encourage more membership to attend.

Join Us

Our annual membership fee is $12 but for that you have the opportunity to attend conferences each year without any charge to you.

All in all, there are many benefits to joining our society so when you check the CGH Auxiliary box at the bottom of page 1 of the application form, there are many opportunities for you. The biggest one is meeting new people and having fun doing it.
