The Auxiliary is looking for new members! Join the Auxiliary to be part of a community dedicated to supporting patient comfort and healing needs at Pullman Regional Hospital.

Volunteer Opportunities

  • Diane's Gift Garden - Use your excellent people skills to volunteer in Diane's Gift Garden to help hospital visitors find the perfect cards and gifts for patients and staff. Gift Garden volunteers must also be on record with the hospital as a Community Volunteer.
  • Have-a-Heart - Participate in the annual Valentine's Day fundraiser by collecting, assembling, and delivering orders of chocolate, cookies, balloons and stuffed animals.
  • Christmas Tree Raffle - Help the committee recruit individuals and businesses to decorate a table-top tree to be raffled during the Christmas season. Your duties may include delivering the undecorated trees, picking up the decorated trees, and transporting them to the hospital and to the Holiday Tea for the raffle.
  • Holiday Tea - In December, Auxiliary members, their friends and community members are invited to this traditional High Tea. Volunteers assist in baking, serving and/or hosting a table.
  • Special Events - The Auxiliary is often involved in various community events. As an event volunteer, you would help set up, decorate, and staff event booths.
