Volunteers contribute many hours of service and financial assistance to Barnes-Kasson Hospital. They supplement the services of the hospital staff in many ways. The Barnes-Kasson Hospital Auxiliary mans and maintains the Hospital Gift Shop. The Gift Shop offers small gift items, personal car/toiletry items, soft drinks, and snacks. All proceeds go to equipment and upgrades for the hospital. The last item that was purchased by the Auxiliary was the salad bar in the cafeteria.
The Auxiliary has been run by President Esther Gall for the last fourteen years. Before becoming President of the Auxiliary, Esther was a dedicated employee of Barnes-Kasson Hospital for sixteen years. She retired in 1999 and became President of the Auxiliary just two days later. Alice Evans is the current Treasurer of the Auxiliary and there are roughly ten members total. The Auxiliary is always looking for new members to join. If you are interested in becoming a member, volunteering, or making a donation to the Auxiliary please contact our Administration Office directly at (570) 853-5251.
If you are interested in volunteering elsewhere in the Hospital or would like to donate to a specific department you can either contact our Administration Office at the number listed above, or dial the department directly. All direct dial numbers can be found on our Contact Us page.
