West Lincoln Memorial Auxiliary

 




 

West Lincoln Memorial Auxiliary (WLMA) has a rich history of supporting WLMH with volunteers that offer care and warmth to patient services as well as fundraising for hospital equipment. Our vibrant organization provides approximately 30,000 hours/year of volunteer time in areas such as the lobby, wards, mail, physiotherapy, medical records, administration, as well as the retail shops Gateway Gifts and Café. The Auxiliary is managed and operated entirely by volunteers.

I am very happy to share with you that WLMA met its pledge of $170,000 in June of 2014 for advanced Gynaecological Laparoscopic equipment and then immediately pledged 150,000 for a new ultrasound machine.  We then had the good fortune to buy an additional ultrasound machine for an extra $50,000.  A deal we could not pass up.  That pledge will be completed by June 2015.  Our new pledge of $210,000 is for a new pulmonary  device , and to buy an echocardiogram which will significantly benefit patients.  Equipment is not supported by government funding therefore, it is important that we all do our part to support our local hospital’s fundraising efforts.  100% of all donations that we receive go directly to hospital equipment and services.  We are pleased to issue tax receipts for all donations.

If you are interested in a rewarding volunteer experience or would like to donate to WLMA please call or visit our office Monday - Friday, 9 am - noon at 905-945-2253 ext 391. Students (minimum age 13) are also welcome to volunteer with WLMA; a minimum commitment of 40 hours is required. Application forms can be downloaded from this site and dropped off at the Auxiliary office in WLMH. Below this message you will find a link to our informative newsletter; we hope you will enjoy it.

I look forward to meeting you.
