Foundation receives $90,000 from hospital's Auxiliary
The Community Hospital of San Bernardino Foundation recently received a historical donation from the hospital’s Auxiliary. Earlier this month, the Auxiliary presented a check in the amount of $90,000 to the Foundation. “We are so thankful for this generous donation,” said Sandee Zschomler, vice president/executive director, Community Hospital of San Bernardino Foundation. “These funds will be used to enhance patient care and support hospital services.”
"With this year’s exceptional donation, the Auxiliary continues to improve the lives of our patients and the community we serve,” said hospital President June Collison.
According to Jo Anne Lines, 2012 Auxiliary Board President, the Auxiliary provides financial support to the hospital through fundraisers and sales at the hospital gift shop. “This donation of $90,000 is the largest annual gift donated by the Auxiliary since its inception in 1958. Dedicated and tireless in our efforts, this group works long hours to support the needs of the hospital. We love being part of the team,” said Lines.
Zschomler added that the Auxiliary’s 40 volunteers annually give over 13,000 hours of their time and talent and donate funds toward the purchase of needed equipment for the benefit of Community Hospital of San Bernardino.
Auxiliary members provide a wide array of services to the hospital such as greeting visitors, staffing the gift shop, sewing crafts in the Volunteer Center or guiding patients and visitors to their destinations.
