The Chilliwack Hospital Auxiliary raises funds through the Thrift Shoppe, knitting case, bake sales and other events to buy equipment for the hospital, provide bursaries for students entering the medical field, and help the community in other ways. Get involved today!

Some facts about the Chilliwack Hospital Auxiliary

Hospital Auxiliary has been helping Chilliwack since 1911

When you decide to join the Chilliwack Hospital Auxiliary you’ll learn about us during your orientation but here are more facts to help you make that important decision.

Our primary goal is to donate money to the Chilliwack Hospital for equipment which recently included the new CT Scanner and we also contribute each Christmas to the various hospital departments such as Parkholm, Cedar Park, Psychiatric Department, Heritage Village and Bradley Centre. We also give out 12 bursaries each year to deserving students entering a medical profession.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

You can email info@chilliwackhospitalauxiliary.ca for more information, view our website at chilliwackhospitalauxiliary.wordpress.com or visit our Facebook page. Our upcoming events and sales are always posted.

Volunteerism is good for the soul.
