The Rooks County Health Center Auxiliary was organized on September 15, 1983, after a couple of attempts to do so in prior years. The first meeting was held October 27, 1983, and we have been changing and growing ever since.
The Auxiliary’s purpose is to promote and advance the welfare of Rooks County Health Center. This is achieved through both fundraising efforts and by spreading the word to others about what services and programs are offered at their hospital.
Each year, an Auxiliary Yearbook is prepared to include names and contact information for Auxiliary members, important dates, and a listing of all committees. All members receive a quarterly newsletter to keep members informed of upcoming news, events, and new services offered at RCH.
Volunteer opportunities for an Auxiliary Member are up to you. You can become involved weekly, monthly, or once a year as any help is appreciated. We have an informative program that is health care-related followed by our business meeting.
Over the past over past six years over $50,000 has been donated to the hospital expansion project by the Auxiliary.
You are invited to attend our monthly meetings held at 10 a.m. the last Thursday of each month in the RCH Education Center.
There are many ways an RCH Auxiliary member can be involved:
Our Gift Shop is located just inside RCH and is managed completely by volunteers. All proceeds go to the Auxiliary. Volunteers are scheduled to work in two-hour shifts Monday – Friday.
Two annual fundraising events are held:
Opening Pheasant Season Bake Sale for equipment/project needs at RCH
Memorial Tree Lighting in December funding our Memorial Scholarships.
We help promote Red Cross Blood Drives five times a year by calling to recruit donors, providing homemade cookies, and donating food.
