Organizations that give us a helping hand

The Castlegar & District Hospital Auxiliary

The CDHFoundation’s honoured donor and partner!

The Castlegar & District Hospital Auxiliary Society was formed in the latter part of 1956 and became a member of the British Columbia Association of Health-Care Auxiliaries in 1957. In those days, we were known as the “Ladies’ Auxiliary” and at times, are still referred to as such. However, they do have men that have joined the Auxiliary now.

Auxiliary volunteers fundraise in the community by operating a thrift store known as the Hospital Auxiliary Treasure Shop. The Auxiliary also operates a Gift Shop at the Castlegar Community Health Centre that carries brand new clothing from infants to young child sizes. These items are made exclusively for the Auxiliaries’ Gift Shops throughout the province, allowing the Castlegar Hospital Auxiliary Gift Shop to offer a terrific selection of attractive, well-made children’s clothing to local shoppers.

Without the Auxiliary’s support, the Foundation would not be able to achieve its goals in fundraising. The Foundation appreciates the work the Auxiliary volunteers do, and for their dedication toward moving Health Care forward in Castlegar and surrounding areas.

A heartfelt THANK YOU to the volunteers of the Castlegar & District Hospital Auxiliary Society. The Castlegar & District Hospital Foundation greatly appreciates the generous support throughout the years, particularly at annual Light Up Campaigns!
