MOUNT VERNON, IL (KFVS) - The Auxiliary of Good Samaritan Regional Health Center recently held their fall general membership meeting at the Elks Lodge in Mt. Vernon.
A $32,000 check was presented to the leadership of the hospital.
According to a news release, in less than three years, the auxiliary’s contributions exceed $250,000.
"The ongoing generosity of the Auxiliary is humbling," said Bruce Flanigan, VP Fund Development for Good Samarian Regional Health Center. "These donations have allowed us to pursue many areas including advanced technology equipment.”
The Auxiliary manages the Sammie gift shop at the hospital, staffs the Bargain Box thrift shop on 10th Street, and holds a number of events throughout the year.
