The Community Hospital-Fairfax Auxiliary takes pride in their projects and holds the hospital, its employees and patients close to their hearts. The group has about 60 members from around Northwest Missouri. They volunteer for many functions including medical screenings, fundraisers and even judging at the employees’ annual Halloween costume contest. The Auxiliary’s biggest ongoing project is the hospital’s Sunshine Corner Gift Shop. Open Monday through Friday, the gift shop carries everything from home décor to cards for all occasions and necessities for patients staying away from home. The Auxiliary uses the proceeds from the Sunshine Corner Gift Shop to purchase equipment and other needs for the hospital.
Scholarships – Once a year, the Community Hospital-Fairfax Auxiliary awards a student in a health-related educational program with a scholarship.
Tray Favors – Once a month, a group of Auxiliary members create tray favors that are placed on patients’ food trays during their stay. The ladies choose fun, cheerful and festive decorations.
Memorial Angel Christmas Tree – Every holiday season, a special Christmas tree is decorated with angels. The angels are purchased by individuals who want to honor loved ones to remember them during the holidays. The angels are taken home and in their place, the tree is decorated with the names of people being remembered by their family and friends.
