In April 2013, the Student Auxiliary of Mission Hospital made a bold commitment to donate $25,000 to support the hospital’s new Neuroscience & Spine Institute. This month, the Student Auxiliary contributed the final payment to reach their goal.
The Student Auxiliary will be recognized on the hospital donor wall as a “Guardian,” one of Mission Hospital’s prestigious donor groups.
“I am in awe of this exceptional group of student leaders and philanthropists,” Cathleen A. Collins, chief development officer for Mission Hospital Foundation, said. “Their generous gift speaks to their passion and commitment to Mission Hospital and the health and wellness of our community.”
Shortly after reaching their goal to support the Neuroscience & Spine Institute, the Student Auxiliary announced a new target—raising $25,000 to benefit Mission Hospital’s Behavioral Health Program.
More than 100 student volunteers serve in various capacities throughout the hospital in a comprehensive year-round program. Students welcome visitors at information desks, assist in delivering meals to patients and support patient registration and discharge.
