Make a Difference

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. Through annual fundraising events, volunteer opportunities, and operating Diane’s Gift Garden, the Auxiliary is able to make annual financial contributions to the hospital for the purchase of patient care items. 

Join the Auxiliary


Volunteer Opportunities
