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 such areas as the lobbies, 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.

WLMA met its pledge to raise $180,000 by 2014 early; the funds used to purchase an Ultrasound Unit. WLMA has a pledge with WLMH for $170,000.00 due in 2016 for an advanced Laparoscopic Assisted Vaginal Hysterectomy device.  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 toward 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.
