AUXILIARY NOTES: Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary is still busy raising funds

Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary has joined forces with the Peace Arch Hospital Foundation to support the Porch Light Campaign to raise funds for the Emergency Fund, which supports patient care.

We are accepting monetary donations at our thrift shop and on our website. Please support the “Turn on your porch light” campaign for Peace Arch Hospital.

Our Superfluity thrift shop has reopened from Tuesdays to Saturday, noon to 4 p.m., with the number customers in the store limited to 10 at a time.

Daily cleaning by our staff prior to opening ensures that all the WorkSafeBC protocols are followed. We have added a Plexiglas shield at our cash counter for the safety of our staff and customers.

A lot of maintenance work was performed by our staff while the shop was closed. The stairs to the boutique have been painted, the sales area has new flooring, several new racks have been added to display our designer clothing, the shoe area on the main floor has been painted and we have a new railing to display our handbags.

We are still accepting donations by appointment only. We need to donate responsibly which means only donating clothing items that are gently used with no rips or stains.

Our hard working Aquarius group have a new fundraiser just in time for Fathers Day.

They are partnering with Daniel Chocolates to supply high quality chocolates made with 100 per cent natural ingredients and the finest chocolate. To participate in this fundraiser go to www.pahas.ca/chocolate.

Gift Baskets, food bank support gourmet market items are not included in this offering. Follow the easy as 1, 2, 3 ordering directions.

In the billing details please add Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary Society Fundraising 2020. Please forward your email confirmation to pahospitalauxiliary@gmail.com.

The order deadline for this is June 14 and the pick-up date is June 20.

Auxiliary members have made more than 1,000 washable scrub bags for the hospital staff.

These bags are used by the hospital staff to take their scrubs home to wash and bring back the next day. The staff greatly appreciates this very useful donation.

The gift shop in the hospital is closed until further notice. For updates, please see our website at www.pahas.ca

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