People don't have to be members of the Sheridan Memorial Hospital Auxiliary to volunteer their services, and they can be members of the auxiliary and not be volunteers – but many of them do volunteer their time and abilities.

Maurita Meehan, who's immediate past president of the auxiliary, talked about what the auxiliary does in the annual auxiliary luncheon meeting earlier this month.

Some of the programs operated by the auxiliary, Meehan said, include the Trees of Love at Christmas time, the 5-Year-old Birthday Party annually in September, the Kozy Korner Gift Shop and Gifts of Kindness, a program to provide presents for patients in the hospital at Christmas time. And there's more, Meehan said.

All of those programs are provided through the auxiliary.

In addition, Meehan said, the auxiliary raises funds which are donated to the hospital for various departments. Meehan said the auxiliary raises funds through the Kozy Korner, the Trees of Love and the auxiliary's membership dues of $20 a year.

She said the auxiliary had just over 150 members at the end of 2018.
