Friends of the Hospital - Our Auxiliary
This volunteer group organized in April of 1986 for the purpose of supporting the Hospital's endeavors through fund-raising for special projects and volunteering in-house. The group has 5 main events through the year:
• February Recruitment Luncheon
• April Homemade Pies Sale
• October Homemade Pies Sale
• Fall Arts & Crafts Show Booth
• Festival of Trees - Decorate Tree
Friends of the Hospital have raised thousands of dollars that continually benefit the Labor and Delivery department at Weiser Memorial. From the purchase of State of the Art warming beds for newborns to supplying a going home bag filled with hand made blankets, hats, booties, and cereal bowls; the Friends are an integral part of welcoming newborns.
Most recently the Friends donated time and money to remodel the now beautiful and spacious delivery rooms. Other projects include the purchase of an ultrasound table,
a rehabilitation bike, and the addition of a fireplace to the newly remodeled hospital admissions area.
