Since 1907, the LRH Auxiliary has been an important part of Littleton Regional Healthcare. Each member is dedicated to supporting LRH through fundraising, educational events, and service projects. The Auxiliary works closely with to support a positive healthcare experience for our North Country community.
Financial support for the Auxiliary projects comes from membership dues, gift shop earnings, and fundraising events. Our major fundraiser, The Moose Ledge Gift Shop offers convenient access to a wide variety of delightful items for LRH patients, visitors and employees. The Books Are Fun book fairs, the two Auxiliary cookbooks for sale, the Holiday Cookie Sale, the sale of mulligans at the Annual Dr. Moose Golf Tournament, and the Bag Ali sale also generate funds. The Auxiliary hosts an Annual Garden of Memories event that provides an opportunity to honor the memory of loved ones and raises funds for the LRH Family Support Team. A very generous annual gift from the Connors family allows us to support the Anna Connors Memorial Collection in the LRH Gale Medical Library in the LRH Gale Medical Library. This lending library offers a wide variety of books and other resources on women's health issues, and is available to the public as well as Auxiliary members and LRH employees.
In recent years, the LRH Auxiliary has disbursed more than $28,000 annually to support various programs and services. Some of these programs include the Care-A-Van Program (now discontinued), Palliative Care, scholarships to area high school seniors, and LRH employees pursuing health career studies, clothes for Emergency Department patients to wear home after treatment, the Reach Out and Read Program, the Annual Women's Health Conference, Doctors' Appreciation Day, Employee Sundaes during National Hospital Week, Cardiac Health Awareness, the Allied Health Program at Littleton High School, and the Garden of Life flower garden located outside of the Oncology Department.
In addition, LRH Auxiliary members donate countless hours in service projects such as the Emergency Department hospitality table, festive holiday decorations, maintaining the Garden of Life, information outreach, the Love That Fuzz plush animals program, and a visit to patients from Santa on Christmas Eve.
