West Lincoln Memorial Auxiliary

 




 

West Lincoln Memorial Auxiliary (WLMA) has been supporting WLMH with volunteers since 1944, offering 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 Coffee Shop and Gift Shop. The Auxiliary is managed and operated entirely by volunteers. There is also an ongoing and successful student volunteer program in place.

I am very happy to announce that WLMA met its pledge of $210,000 for a new pulmonary device, and to buy an echocardiogram which will significantly benefit patients. 

Our current pledge of $190,000 is for: a Bathing Unit which will making bathing patients much more safe and comfortable for both patients and staff, Portable Digital X-ray Equipment, Hepa-filtered Cabinets, Hydraulic Lift Tables and for the existing Endoscopy Suite.

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 the Auxiliary website (www.wlmauxiliary.ca) and dropped off at the Auxiliary office in WLMH.

I look forward to meeting you all.
