The WCH Women’s Auxiliary is an organization of volunteers that has been supporting and helping raise money to buy new equipment for the hospital and the members of our community.
The Auxiliary raises money by hosting a number of bake sales and craft sales throughout the year. They also run the Gift Shop in the hospital and the Thrift Shop downtown and volunteer their time to help with the Blood Drives hosted at WCH.
During the luncheon Melodie Wilkey, President of the WCH Women’s Auxiliary presented the hospital with a donation of $6,000 to help purchase new hospital beds. WCH appreciates all the members of the WCH Women’s Auxiliary and their dedication and hard work each and every member gives to help our community and our hospital.
The Auxiliary consists of over 70 volunteer members and the current officers are Melodie Wilkey, President; Kathy Rue, Vice President; Helen Engele, Secretary; and Bernadine Stein, Treasurer.
