At their annual meeting late last week the Sheridan Memorial Hospital Auxiliary gave $25,000 in donations to benefit an upcoming project at the hospital. Hospital Foundation Executive Director Ada Kirven.
After this latest donation, the total that the Hospital Auxiliary has given to the Hospital is $373,252. Each year at their annual meeting the Auxiliary choses a project that they donate funds toward.
Hospital volunteer coordinator Patty Forister stated in a media release that the auxiliary saw the need and importance of being an initial donor on this project so that families can stay home for specialized treatment where their support system is already in place. She added that this falls in-line with the Axuliary's Constitution which states that 'the purpose of this organization is to promote and advance the welfare of Memorial Hospital'.
The checks were presented to Hospital Foundation Board President Kevin Bailey by Auxiliary President Sandy Pilch and Barbara Niner of the Kozy Korner Gift Shop. The Gift Shop contributed $20,000 of the total donation and the remaining $5,000 came from the annual Christmas Trees of Love Project.
