AUXILIARY NOTES: Magic of Christmas comes to PAH Auxiliary

Christmas is coming to the Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary.

The Auxiliary gift shop located in the hospital lobby, has magically been transformed into a Christmas display.

There are elves on the shelves, cups for tea and ornaments for the tree.

There are gifts galore for all ages. There are stocking stuffers including the Christmas emery boards and mini manicure sets.

There are all types of decorations for the home, including Christmas birds and mini-decorated Christmas trees.

New this year is a selection of warm ponchos, along with shawls, scarves, hats and gloves.

The baby section has small stuffed animals and little slippers with bows on the toes.

Our talented buyers have added festive purses for that special event when one needs sparkle.

Christmas is a time when many people entertain.

A flower arrangement or a seasonal table arrangement make excellent hostess gifts.

These can be ordered from the gift shop.

To order an arrangement, please call the gift shop at 604-535-4500, ext. 757504.

The Superfluity shop is also all decked out with everything that you need for the holiday season.

Join us on Tuesday, Dec. 3 for $1.49 day.

Specialty marked items are chosen for each $1.49 day and include housewares, clothing items, children’s clothes and toys and Christmas items, just to name a few.

On Friday, Dec. 6 our Sunset group, which is part of the Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary, will be in the shop selling their delicious home-baked goodies just in time for the holiday season.

All proceeds from this sale benefit Oceanside, which is a mental-health facility at Peace Arch Hospital.

The facility is a 24-bed acute-care facility for people with mental illness or age-related psychiatric disorders who may pose a risk to themselves or others.

Monthly contributions from the Sunset group are given to the facility, which provides treats and entertainment for these patients, as well as Christmas gifts for the patients who have no family support.

The bake sale will be from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., while supplies last.

The Superfluity Shop will be open on Dec. 24, from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. and will be closed on Dec. 25 and 26. It will also be open on Dec. 31, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The shop will be closed on Jan. 1.

The Auxiliary is always looking for new members. We need volunteers with cashier experience for the two retail shops.

Volunteer shifts are flexible, with a minimum commitment of a four-hour shift once a week. Men are also needed to help at the Superfluity Shop.

If you would like to join, please pick up a membership package at the information desk at the hospital or at the Superfluity Shop (located at 15163 Prospect Ave.).

They are also available on our website, at www.pahas.ca

We can also be reached on Facebook, at Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary.
