Membership to the Hospital Auxiliary is open to anyone 18 years or older. Annual dues are $1.00 per year for active members, $5.00 per year for associate members who wish to support the Hospital Auxiliary, but not work. A lifetime membership is $50.00. For more information please contact 402-387-0801.
The Hospital Auxiliary runs a thrift shop at 304 North Main Street with all funding for the Auxiliary coming from proceeds generated by the Thrift Shop and from donations. The Thrift Shop is open Monday through Saturday from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.
The Hospital Auxiliary also sponsors the blood bank and furnishes “Pink Ladies” to assist on selected surgery days.
The Thrift Shop provides a service to the community by providing a convenient place to donate items, and where people in the community can purchase needed items at bargain prices.
All proceeds from the Thrift Store are used to buy equipment for the Brown County Hospital and EMS.
Through May 2018, donations totaling over $650,000 have been made to Brown County Hospital.
