The Volunteer Auxiliary’s 380 members, who have a long history of providing crucial support throughout the hospital, donated over 82,000 hours during the last fiscal year and presented the hospital with the final two $25,000 installments of a $200,000 P.E.T. scanner donation.
In addition, the volunteers donated over $10,400 to numerous other St. Joseph’s programs and agreed to give $250,000 to the Mercy Health Foundation over the next five years on behalf of the Sister Mary Roland Endowment for the Mercy Lodge.

Rima and Fale honored 20 volunteers – Barbara Hogan, Rosemarie Kawlewski, Jack Losman, Dot Brumley, Hank Clemente, Paul Woodward, Marge Marabanian, Peg Kuhnly, Darthy Tyrity, Nell Borland, Mary Darm, Al Dumbry, Lois Ferguson, Bill Glenn, Eddie Lewis, Dwight Mann, Bety Meeks, Bob Miller, Nina Nation and Bonnie Schlabowski – who have donated over 100 hours per month.
