For more than 20 years, the Morgan Memorial Hospital auxiliary has been an important arm of the hospital, dedicated to supporting its missions, and contributing funds to help purchase necessary equipment. What started as a group of 6 women in 1991 has now grown to over 75 sharing a common goal.
Auxiliary members come from the various communities served by the hospital. Members work together to organize two primary fundraisers each year, the Festival of Friends in August and the Love Light Tree in December. They are proud to continue the tradition of serving as ambassadors and promoting Morgan Memorial to local citizens.
