Auxiliary Members are Brightening Everyone's Holidays w

JEFFERSON, Iowa – You know the holidays are fast approaching when the Greene County Medical Center Auxiliary kicks into high gear, making sweet treats, decorating trees, wreaths and tables, manning holiday sales at the Gift Garden and providing opportunities for residents to give the gift of life.

The calendar turns to December this week and the Auxiliary has filled the lobby at Greene County Medical Center with beautiful Christmas trees, festive wreaths, one-of-a-kind table decorations and more at their annual Holiday of Lights. Everyone is invited to pick their favorites in this silent bidding event that will close at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 7. The winning bidders will be able to pick up and take home their new décor from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. that afternoon; from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 8; or noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 10.

While you take a look at the Holiday of Lights items, you can also venture into the Auxiliary Gift Garden shop to see the stock of beautiful seasonal decorations and gifts. The store is open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, and for the holidays, special Saturday hours on Dec. 10 and 17 of noon to 4 p.m. These busy women will be hosting a special sale, with 25% off all things Christmas on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday Dec. 13, 14 and 15 and again on Saturday, Dec. 17 during those same business hours.

Who doesn’t want a little something sweet this time of year? The popular Auxiliary Candy Sale is scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 15, but you better plan on getting to the Greene County Medical Center Lobby early if you don’t want to miss out. The sale will open at 7 a.m. and these tasty treats will disappear fast.

And during this season of family, friends, warmth and giving, consider providing the gift of life to up to three individuals by donating blood at the Auxiliary Blood Drive Tuesday, Dec. 13 at Trinity Lutheran Church. LifeServe Blood Center will be scheduling appointments from 12:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Call 800-287-4903 to lock in your time today.  

The Auxiliary raises funds to support the equipment, furnishing and material needs of the Medical Center’s many different departments while also offering their personal assistance throughout the facility. Each year, donations are also allocated to their annual scholarship program. Thanks to your support, the Auxiliary has presented more than $600,000 to Greene County Medical Center over the past 61 years.
